Construyendo comunidad un evento a la vez.
Fourth Annual Latino Veterans Legacy of Valor Project
Viernes, Abril 13, 20185:30 pm - 8:30 pm *
We invite you to join us in honoring our Latino service members, past, present and future, at an event featuring those brave individuals who have served and have shaped our shared community.

We will recognize the Fourth Annual 1st Lt. Daren M. Hidalgo Latino Veteran of the Year on Friday, April 13, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. This date is significant because it marks the day in 2014 when the 65th Infantry Regiment, the Borinqueneers of Puerto Rico, received their long-awaited, well-merited Congressional Gold Medal. Their story, like that of many local military heroes, is one of great heroism and sacrifice in the face of adverse circumstances. These are the stories we hope to bring to light with our efforts.

In previous years, we were known as the Latino Veterans’ Legacy of Valor Project, a collaborative effort of the Wisconsin American GI Forum (WI-AGIF), the Milwaukee County War Memorial and local community volunteers. We are thrilled to announce that in 2017, we became a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a new name: Latino Veterans’ Legacy of Valor Foundation, Inc. This new designation will allow us to further our cause in educating local youth about their community heroes, as well as raise funds to establish a permanent tribute to Latino veterans in Milwaukee.

In addition to furthering our mission, your sponsorship will allow our Foundation to donate 20% of all proceeds from the event to assist veterans and their families affected by this fall’s unprecedented natural disasters.

Displays honoring our veterans and service members will available for viewing. Please feel free to send electronic photos and stories about your family’s heroes to

More ticket and sponsorship information coming soon.
