Is It your cowardice?

During the Korean War Puero Ricans saved your asses as you turned your backs on the Chinese and ran for cover and left the Puerto Rican 65th Regiment behind so you could frantically run back to your ships. Does that count?

Excerpt:
The enemy made many attempts to encircle the Regiment, but each time they failed because of the many casualties inflicted by the 65th. The 65th was part of a task force which enabled the U.S. Marines to withdraw from the Chosin Reservoir on December 1950.

When the Marines were encircled by the Chinese Communist troops close to the Manchurian border, they were ordered to retreat and worked their way back to Hungnam. The men of the 65th rushed to their defense and ordered to stay behind and fight the enemy. As a consequence, the Marines were able to return safely to their ships. The 65th held the rear guard and were the last unit to embark from Hungnam. The men of the 65th who participated in said action were awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal.[14] Among the battles and operations in which the 65th participated was Operation Killer in January 1951, becoming the first Regiment to cross the Han River in South Korea during the operation

General Douglas MacArthur, was quoted in Tokyo saying the following:[24]
"The Puerto Ricans forming the ranks of the gallant 65th Infantry on the battlefields of Korea…are writing a brilliant record of achievement in battle and I am proud indeed to have them in this command. I wish that we might have many more like them."

Most black males today are found to be jealous of most Puerto Ricans, and much evidence can be found all over the internet where race is the subject on the table - not only here. It's simply observation-based of real people in real situations, not opinion-based.

Their minds and emotional state seem to be coming apart at the seams during a time, place and generation where one would think race-relations should be on the road to improvement. It's kinda like we're going back through time travel rather than progressing forward.

Dr. Juan R. Cruz, Ph.D.,(born: January 5, 1946) is a Puerto Rican aerospace engineer who played an instrumental role in the design and development of the Mars Exploration Rover (MER) and Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) parachute.[1]

Career in NASA [edit]

Cruz is a senior aerospace engineer in the Exploration Systems Engineering Branch at the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. His responsibilities are focused on research and development of entry, descent, and landing (EDL) systems for robotic and human exploration missions. He was a member of the highly successful Mars Exploration Rover (MER) and Mars Science laboratory (MSL) projects that placed rovers on the surface of Mars in 2004 and 2012. His contributions to the MER and MSL projects centered on the design and qualification of the supersonic parachute.[1][5]

The MER-A rover, Spirit, was launched on June 10, 2003 at 17:59 UTC, and MER-B, Opportunity, on July 7, 2003. Spirit landed in Gusev crater on January 4, 2004 and Opportunity landed in the Meridiani Planum on the opposite side of Mars from Spirit, on January 25, 2004. Cruz was among the scientists from Langley who helped develop the parachute which helped slow the spacecraft during entry, descent and landing.

According to Cruz:

"There are challenges to testing these parachutes because we can not test it at exactly the right conditions. Earth's atmosphere is the one we have to work with and the Martian atmosphere is very different, so you have to make adjustments in how you test the parachute. Another issue is the wind tunnel models we used in our tests were ten-percent scale models, about five feet in diameter".

[6]

Cruz is also a member of the Phoenix (Mars 2007), Mars Science Laboratory (Mars 2011),[7] and Crew Exploration Vehicle EDL teams. He has undertaken research on advanced missions to Mars, including robotic airplanes, as well as having been a technical reviewer for the Genesis, Huygens, and Stardust missions. Prior to his involvement with exploration programs he conducted research on high-altitude unmanned aircraft.[5]

Z-z-zzzzzzzzzzz!!! Hon, this sort of thing does not interest me...I don't get off on people who feel the need to write out a laundry list of proof of the accomplishments of other folks because they themselves ain't shyt...If you are tryna prove that this man is a reflection on all Puerto Ricans, you'd better include some robbers, murderers, thieves...etc. There ain't no race or group or culture that damn virtuous...and according to the Bible "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Only other humans, who know they ain't immortal, find this information impressive...Like God...I don't!

Orlando Figueroa

Orlando Figueroa
Previously the NASA Mars Czar.BornSeptember 9, 1955
San Juan, Puerto RicoNationalityPuerto RicanOccupationMechanical Engineering, scientistOrlando Figueroa (born: September 9, 1955), previously the NASA Mars Czar[1] Director for Mars Exploration and the Director for the Solar System Division in the Office of Space Science at NASA Headquarters and the Deputy Center Director for Science and Technology of the Goddard Space Flight Center. He has since retired in 2010 from NASA.

Early career

Figueroa was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As a child he always had an interest in learning how mechanical toys functioned. During his elementary school years, he would occupy most of his time building things and looking for solutions to problems. After he finished his primary and secondary education, he went to high school, where he was an advanced mathematics student. The beginning of the space era, captured his attention during his childhood. He would gaze at the stars and moon and would try to imagine what it would be like to travel into space.

Figueroa enrolled in the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez and in 1978, he earned his Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Upon his graduation, he continued his studies and completed advanced courses in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park.[2]

Career at NASA

In 1982, Figueroa was hired by NASA and was named Head of the Cryogenics Technology Section at the Goddard Space Flight Center located in Maryland. Among the other positions that Figueroa has held are, Lead Cyogenic Engineer for the Cryogenic Optical Assembly of the Cosmic Background Explorer, Manager for the Superfluid Helium On Orbit Transfer Shuttle Experiment, Manager for the Small Explorer Project, Manager for the Explorer Program and Director of the Systems, Technology and Advanced Concepts Directorate.[3]

In 1997, Figueroa became a member of the Senior Executive Service of the U.S. Federal Government. On September 2003, he was appointed to the position of Director for the Solar Systems Division in the Space Science at NASA Headquarters and he also held the position of Director for Mars Exploration.[3]

As Director of Mars Exploration, Figueroa led a team of hundreds of scientists, engineers and program specialists in one of the Agency's most ambitious projects to determine if life ever existed on Mars. The programs long range objective is to place humans into its present hostile environment.[4] Under his directorship the Mars Explorer Rover mission launched Spirit and Opportunity in 2004. The launching of two rovers within days of each other had never been done before, and it was accomplished in three years, from conception to launch, in the wake of mission failures from Mars ’98.[5]

In August 2005 Mr. Figueroa was appointed to the position of Director for System Safety and Mission Assurance at the Goddard Space Flight Center. In October 2005, Figueroa was named Director of Applied Engineering and Technology at Goddard, as such he is responsible for 1,300 employees and provides guidance on engineering and system technology.[5] In January 2010, he accepted the position of Deputy Center Director for Science and Technology of Goddard Space Flight Center.[6] Mr. Figueroa currently resides in Maryland with his family.

Awards and recognitions [edit]

Figueroa received an Honorary Doctor's Degree. Among the many awards and recognitions which he has received are the following:

The NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal (1993)

The Community Stars Award from the Maryland Science Commission (1994)

The President Rank Award for Outstanding Performance as Senior Executive (2001)

The Pioneer Award (2002)

Named "The Most Influential Hispanic in the Nation" by Hispanic Business magazine (2002).[2]

If the textbook black male don't care to be fathers to their kids, stop committing crimes and better their communities, it's his prerogative but hatin on other races of people both on and off the net should be at the bottom of their "solution list" as it's also certain to be the least effective.
