The network tried to reach out to everyone. There have always been many Latino soldiers. Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, most every country has been represented. In World War II "Chiquita" was one of the first AFRS shows directed to this audience. In 1955 the show was still running.
There was a wide variety of talent over the years. At the end of the big network years we had Mary Helen Barro.
