    JBPHH Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

    191002-N-NU281-1000 Pearl Harbor (Oct. 9, 2019) A graphic depicting Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam's celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 - Oct. 15. As of June 2018, approximately 59,000 active and Reserve Sailors of Hispanic heritage serve in the U.S. Navy contributing to the strength of the nation’s force. Hispanic Americans’ military service dates back to the Civil War. The tradition of observing Hispanic heritage began in 1968, when President Lyndon B. Johnson designated a week in mid-September as National Hispanic Heritage Week. Twenty years later in 1988, President Ronald Reagan extended that week to a month-long observance.
