Frustrated, Filipino Veterans throw their medal downs

Break down of the Veterans involvement and fight for recognition

Learn ALL About it  (video testimony by Filipino American World War Two Veterans) here

Also great information from PBS here

The Veterans in this video (and link with further details) have been lobbying for a very long time. They have fought a good fight and many are now dying. Those who are left continue to TRY and do something. I have the utmost respect for them in doing so and the other American Veterans who get behind them.

These Veterans fought and sacrificed too. Maybe promises shouldn’t be made if  they can’t be kept.  This is the whole  mentality  that continues of dehumanizing, devaluing, and that lives are expendable.
