FILIPINO WW2 VETERANS, OUR HEROES DESERVING FULL RECOGNITION

MHCVets

Washington DC– Yes, our beloved World War 2 Filipino Veterans deserve full recognition and pensions they deserve, not the lump sum benefits given to them under Fil Vet Equity Compensation Fund w a quit claim provision and in the nature of “damages” like a car accident claim .

Thank you Mr .President for recognizing this historical wrong. As Legal Counsel, for Justice for Filipino Americans (JFAV ), we will cite your Executive recognition together with those made by other Presidents’ of this American Nation. We are all enjoying our individual freedoms and democracy bec of the heroic contributions of our beloved heroes,’the FIL.WW2 Veterans .

Treat them equally like any American War Veterans not only in words but in terms of full benefits. and extend them now to the few hundreds still alive and their widows. America must do this not only because they deserve it, but it is the legal and moral right thing to do. (Rev.Atty.Arnedo S.Valera, Executive Director, Migrant Heritage Commission, Metro D.C.)
