Latinos Deserve their Recognition

Memorial Day; Let us remember the sacrifices made....some have given the ultimate while others have given of their time and have been lucky enough to have stayed out of harms way. In either case, those who have never experienced the life of a soldier, sailor, airman or Marine can never really come to understand the sacrifices that are the norm. Why do it? Camaraderie, patriotism or, as many would say, it was a way out of the 'hood. A service member does what he does without question and with a commitment to service like no other. Whether they agree with the current conflict or not; the accomplishment of the mission is without question.

Latinos have served in this manner in the U.S. for a very long time. With all due respect to every service member past, present and future, Latinos must receive the recognition that they so justly deserve. Their commitments and sacrifices have been no different. A review of these sacrifices is desperately needed so that those who deserve to be recognized can so get that recognition.
