M.Sgt. Juan Negrón fought with the Borinqueneers, an all-Puerto Rican regiment, in Korea.

He did not originally receive the Medal of Honor, but was one of the 24 veterans to whom President Obama awarded the medal in 2014 - veterans who should have received it in the first place, but had been overlooked due to their race or religion.
