Abstract in Portuguese
O presente trabalho tem como objetivo investigar e registrar a participação de brasileiros nas Forças Armadas dos EUA desde a Guerra do Vietnã até o presente momento. O fenômeno do alistamento militar de estrangeiros nas forças de batalha estadunidenses remonta aos tempos da Guerra de Secessão e compõe parte importante da história de diversas comunidades imigrantes no país. Desde a Guerra do Vietnã, há relatos de brasileiros lutando pelos EUA. No entanto, o fenômeno vira uma tendência mais numerosa a partir do momento que a imigração brasileira ganha maior expressão, na década de 1980. O trabalho busca, portanto, quantificar e discutir esta participação tanto a partir do ponto de vista da comunidade emigrada, quanto do ponto de vista individual dos emigrados entrevistados.

Since the War of Vietnam, there are reports of Brazilian-born personnel in the US military. The enlistment of Brazilians becomes a tendency as Brazilian immigration to the US becomes a phenomenon, in the mid 1980´s. This essay targets to quantify and discuss this participation simultaneously from the point of view of the Brazilian community and from the personal views of those who enlisted.
