US Independence with Lateeno support

I hope that we are all celebrating this 4th of July, some of our gente believe that this is an American Independence Day but if we look back we would see Lateeno names in support of the American colonies fighting for freedom. Whether directly or indirectly involved, we have been a part of every major conflict that the US has been in from the beginning. The American Revolution had Lateeno names written into its history, names like Gen. Bernardo de Galvez, Francisco de Miranda, Capt. Jorge Farragut and many unnamed Cubana lateenas who helped raise funds for support of the French to assist the Americans in the siege of Yorktown, Virginia. Today is our celebration as well, we have shed our blood and made major sacrifices throughout history. We have earned the right and privilege to call ourselves Lateeno Americans, so Lateenos, take out your flags and fly them side by side with the American flag with honor and pride, know that we helped build this great nation and its representation of freedom. For the last 200 plus years we have been keeping watch and showing our patriotism, and have answered every call. Con mucho amor God bless, and to all my brothers in arms we love you...
