This documentary tells the story of the Latino veterans of the South Bay and Central Coast. Many of these brave young men, mostly farm workers, felt compelled to prove their patriotism. Changed by their experiences overseas, they came home to a new fight around social justice and community issues, to prove they deserved the civil rights and liberties of all Americans. Navy veteran Cesar Chavez, the celebrated labor leader, became a champion of farm workers and helped found the United Farm Workers union. Spanish translation available on SAP. Produced by KTEH.
