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.
