LULAC Salutes Latino Veterans
Washington, DC – Today, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the oldest and largest Hispanic civil rights organization in the country, salutes Latino veterans.
To express gratitude to our veterans, LULAC collaborated with the American GI Forum and federal agencies to hold the 4th Annual LULAC Veterans Summit in Los Angeles last December. Keynote speakers included John U. Sepulveda, Assistant Secretary, Office of Human Resources and Administration and Steve L. Muro, Acting Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
“I am personally touched by all the veterans I have interacted with and their stories of honor and bravery,” said Margaret Moran, LULAC’s National President. “I am also moved by the personal sacrifice of military families and humbled by the patriotism of those they support, our soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines. I want to encourage all of you to reach out and support our troops. Let them know you appreciate all that they do.”
House Resolution 1651 includes the fact that 149,411 Latinos are currently serving as active duty members in the United States Armed Services. According to the most recently available figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, over 1.1 million Latinos are veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. There are 23 million surviving veterans in the United States.
Veterans Day is a time to thank and honor our veterans for their service. LULAC would like to honor the servicemen and women who have risked and sacrificed so much for our country. Although Veterans Day comes around once a year, we are conscious of our veterans year-round and truly grateful to them for their service.
The League of United Latin American Citizens, the largest and oldest Hispanic membership organization in the country, advances the economic conditions, educational attainment, political influence, health, housing and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs operating at more than 880 LULAC councils nationwide.I paraphrased the LULAC Press release so that my lovely readers don't strain their eyes with the small print I intentionally formated the letter in.
Blah Blah Latino, Blah Blah Hispanic...LULAC wants to ensure that Hispanics and Latinos never really think of themselves as Americans, so when the time comes to reconquer all the territory that Spain took but then lost (dodos) we will have our army already in place. Then the Grand Raza (We're not like the NAZIs, though...we don't like blond people AT ALL - we even have a funny name for them...Gringos HAHA - see so just because we are all about the RAZA, we absolutely hate blonds so don't call us NAZIs )
Anyway dear RAZA, with the help of our well-placed Loyalist Politicians, we have wrangled out yet another something that is just for US LATINOS AND HISPANICS. HAHA The Stupid GRINGOs get to pay for it HAHA. We can't wait until we get rid of all those Gringos and BLACKOs so that we can run the place and it will be just as dysfunctional and corrupt as the rest of Latin America(1). HOME SWEET HOME.
(1) Except for Chile, which is doing quite well since they booted the leftists, and also knows how to build for an earthquake, and Maradona, just because.
