Vandalism at the Puerto Rico Veterans Memorial

Vandalism at the Puerto Rico Veterans Memorial 

The Puerto Rico Veterans Memorial in Boston, Massachusetts, opened in 2013. It was the first stateside memorial honoring Puerto Rican military service, and the first veterans memorial in the nation to include both male and female soldiers. It honors all the men and women from Puerto Rico who have served in the U.S.military — more than 200,000 people, according to the Department of Defense.

Sadly, over Memorial Day weekend, it was vandalized.

PR51st believes that shameful actions like this one present us an opportunity for us to educate ourselves and others about the need to honor our American Heroes from Puerto Rico and demand equal dignity and rights for U.S. citizens on the Island. Our Executive Director, George Laws Garcia, takes on this topic in our latest video, which you can watch by clicking here

Please share this content with your friends and family on social media using the hashtags #SayYes2PuertoRico & #Statehood4PuertoRico. Together we can fight this kind of ignorance, and more importantly build support for the Puerto Rico statehood cause within the millions of Americans who genuinely appreciate the many contributions of our Puerto Rican veterans.

Thanks, 

The PR51st Team
