SFC Agustin Ramos Calero

SFC Agustin Ramos Calero (1919 - 1989)

SFC Calero was a soldier of the 65th Infantry Regiment, also known as the “The Borinqueneers”, a Puerto Rican regiment of the United States Army. He was one of 62,000 Puerto Ricans who joined the military during World War II. He was nicknamed the “one-man army” by those around him because he was responsible for holding back the German Army during World War II. Despite his injuries (he was wounded multiple times) he continued serving throughout Europe and received 22 medals making him the most decorated Hispanic-American in WWII. Among those medals includes the Silver Star. He also served in the Korean War.
