The U.S. Army joined the nation in recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15) by highlighting the educational, leadership and career opportunities it provides for Hispanic youth. The Army will partner with key Latino organizations to help develop the next generation of leaders – either for military or civilian careers – with a particular focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). These partnerships include the Army’s support of programs and events hosted by the University of Texas – Pan American, New Futuro, LULAC National Education Service Centers, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, and Great Minds in STEM.
