Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 to October 15, and was enacted in 1988 on the anniversary of the independence of several Latin American nations: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. In appreciation of this annual observance, one of our research database providers, Gale, is highlighting the military contributions of Hispanic Americans with its Fuera de las Sombras (Out of the Shadows) program.
