2018 National Hispanic Heritage Month poster

Hispanic Americans have an undeniable and proud record of military service, dating back to the Civil War. This month’s poster is designed to showcase Hispanic American devotion to duty and celebrate their culture and heritage. The service member represents all Hispanic men and women who have diligently served our nation. Within the uniform are images of Hispanic service members and civilians contributing to their notable history in various ways. The tapestry behind the service member represents the cultural vibrancy of the many nations who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. Whether their origins can be traced to Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, or one of dozens of other Spanish-speaking countries or cultures, Hispanic Americans have defended America with unwavering valor and honor. Today, thousands of Hispanic-American service members throughout the world are protecting our nation. Just as in generations past, we honor our Hispanic community—military and civilian—for significantly contributing toward protecting the United States and embodying Department of Defense values that unite us as one team.
