MEDIA ADVISORY: Rubio To Honor Florida Borinqueneers At Orlando Ceremony
Washington, D.C. – Tomorrow, August 5, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) will honor members of the 65th Infantry Regiment “Borinqueneers” for their bravery and service at a Borinqueneers Florida Honor Ceremony in Orlando. In June, Rubio was on hand when President Obama signed a bill into law to award the Borinqueneers with the Congressional Gold Medal (the bill-signing portion begins around the 10:30 mark). The measure was sent to the President’s desk after the Senate passed S. 1174, which Rubio originally co-sponsored.
The Borinqueneers were a segregated Hispanic unit, comprised of mostly Puerto Rican soldiers, who were not given the same benefits and honors awarded to other soldiers despite their service in World War I, World War II and the Korean War.
