National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) is an official time that we recognize the contributions made by the Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States.
Hispanic Heritage Month, whose roots go back to 1968, begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Columbus Day (Día de la Raza) is October 12.
We will feature each week a Hispanic and Latino American to inform the public of the enormous contributions to our society.
This Week we feature
Sam E. Dominguez
An 18-year-old Fort Davis, Texan, Sam Dominguez volunteered for the Army believing he’d serve for year and then return home. Six months later, Pearl Harbor was bombed. This sergeant in the 2nd Armored Division stationed in North Africa and Europe proudly recalls the camaraderie and unity of purpose within his unit.
