In the ranks of military excellence, few stories resonate with the bravery and endurance exemplified by the Borinqueneers during the Korean War. The 65th Infantry Regiment, primarily composed of Puerto Rican soldiers, stood out for their exceptional bravery and discipline under challenging conditions, overcoming barriers of language and racial discrimination.
Their heroic actions ranged from critical defensive maneuvers to valiant rearguard stands, symbolizing the undying spirit and commitment of Puerto Rican soldiers in the U.S. military. The Borinqueneers not only fought with honor on foreign soil but also paved the way for future generations to serve with pride and dignity.
We are thrilled to announce a special event that brings their legacy to the forefront. We are hosting a book talk and signing with Talia Aikens-Nuñez, author of “The Men of the 65th: The Borinqueneers of the Korean War.”
Talia Aikens-Nuñez’s book is more than just a recounting of historical events; it’s a tribute to the men who shaped a crucial chapter in military history. Her work illuminates their struggles and triumphs, offering readers a profound understanding of their journey.
