"Borinqueneers" from Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa opened the doors to its seventh Counter Terrorism Course for the Ugandan People's Defense Force (UDPF) at the Kasenyi Military Training center this summer.
The four-month course, being taught by "Borinqueneer" Soldiers from the 1/65th Infantry Battalion of the Puerto Rico National Guard, will end this month.
According to historical records, the men of the 1/65th came up with the nickname "Borinqueneer" during a long sea voyager while serving in the Korean War.
