SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

Hispanic Americans continue to make a vital contribution toward the nation's defense, including the global war on terrorism in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere around the world. These troops are helping bring liberty to the oppressed and creating a better world for the next generation, which will no longer have to be fearful and terrorized. The nation's Hispanic service members, with their proven devotion to faith, the community and the country, are critical to achieving that goal.

Donald H. Rumsfeld
Secretary of Defense
