The Borinqueneers Congressional Gold Medal Alliance is a non-partisan, all volunteer organization dedicated to obtaining the Congressional Gold Medal for the only Hispanic-segregated Active-Duty military unit in US history, the 65th Infantry Regiment, known as "The Borinqueneers." Since 1776, only 1 Latino American has received the Congressional Gold Medal, Roberto Clemente. Like other segregated military units, such as the Tuskegee Airmen and Navajo Code Talkers, the Borinqueneers performed admirably in the face of large obstacles. We are well on our way to obtaining this distinction and need your help by contacting your senators and U.S. representative to ensure they co-sponsor the bills introduced to the house and the senate.
