Fil-Am Vets Event

ImageMembers of Faccgn attended the Fil-Am Vets Event highlighting the need to support HR-210.  A congressional bill which would re-instate the original promise made to Filipinos who fought side by side with the US forces against the enemy in WWII in the Philippines.  Fil-Am Vets were promised by the US Government that they would be recognized as and be given the same benefits as any other US military personnel who served in WWII.  Later that promise was repealed by the US Government.  Many spoke out at the event in support of the aging Fil-Am Vets many of whom have passed away without ever receiving their rightful recognition and benefits.
