Memorial Day Celebration of the Borinqueneers

On Monday, May 29, 2017 at 1:00pm, Memorial Day, Las Mercedes Memorial Park in Ponce will become the stage to one of the most important recognitions organized in the south zone of the Island to fallen heroes. We honor the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform and their families.

We have been honoring this day for the past 28 years! The memorial park along with a number of community organizations, government officials and the military will unite to keep alive the sacrifice of the men and women who gave their lives realizing the patriotic gesture of defending freedom; which molds the spirit of our Nation. About 900 persons will take part in the activity. We are honored to dedicate the “2017 Memorial Day Ceremony” to the Veterans of the 65th Infantry Regiment, nicknamed “The Borinqueneers”; in testimony of the solidarity and gratitude for the courage and freedom exhibited by these brave Puerto Ricans.

We are requesting that you bring a floral offering befitting the tone of the day’s event to honor our fallen soldiers.

We hope to greet you on this Memorial Day,
