It seems to be high time that we, in this country, pay due respect to the Mexican Army…a fighting force like no other and the immense contributions they made to the allied effort to win WWII.
Yes… you did indeed read that opening line correctly…Mexico…MEXICO…was a key player in winning WWII.
Why…it seems like yesterday when, as a young lad, I was regaled with stories told by my dad and my uncle, both of whom fought for our nation during that world war, regarding the significant contributions made by the Mexicans.
In the Pacific…the Mexicans got involved in WWII when the Japanese bombed the hell out of Acapulco…sinking 2 cruise ships and setting an outdoor café afire.
Naturally…Mexico rebuilt their fleet and took off in hot pursuit of the Japanese.
There was the Battle of Midway where, had the Mexicans not been engaged in their afternoon siesta…they would have put up a tremendous fight…perhaps sinking a Japanese aircraft carrier or two but, regardless of their Midway midday nap…they did manage to rake out the sand along the beach before dinner.
And who could ever forget their presence in the Philippines where the Mexican Army of landscapers pruned the way through the dense jungle foliage for the Bataan Death March?
