List of Puerto Rican KIA

 Since I know how difficult it is for some people in the states to find information on the net regarding Puerto Rican soldiers killed in action.

I have taken the liberty of hunting this information down. El Nuevo Dia in Puerto Rico has a web page called Héroes Boricuas where the names are listed. I have compiled their list here in alphabetical order to make it easier to go through.
This is a list of the 65  Puerto Rican soldiers killed in the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as of September 13, 2007.  For news reports ( in Spanish ) go here, for DoD listing go here.
