National Hispanic Heritage Month is a great opportunity to pause and reflect on our shared history as Americans, and to celebrate the rich mosaic of people and cultures who, together, built and strengthened our Army and our nation.
This year’s national theme – “Hispanic Americans: A History of Serving our Nation”– aptly captures that spirit as we come together to celebrate the contributions of Hispanic Americans to our nation and Army. Through hard work, devotion to family, loyalty to community and country, Hispanic Americans pursue the American dream and contribute to the strength, protection and diversity of our nation. Their culture, talent and passion shaped our past and will certainly shape our future. Hispanic Americans also enjoy a unique and storied history in our Army – serving and fighting in every war since the nation’s birth.
