Balangiga bells commemorating Philippine American war will begin return journey

The Balangiga bells’ journey home will begin later this week.

Dr. Rolando Borrinaga of the Committee on Historical Research of National Commission for Culture and the Arts has said that a ceremony will be held this week at the Warren Air Force base in Cheyenne, Wyoming for the repatriation of two of the Balangiga Bells.

A third bell, part of a museum exhibit in South Korea, has been crated and will also make its way home.

No date has been set for when the century-old war trophy from the Philippine American war will arrive.

After remarks by President Rodrigo Duterte, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis announced last August that the bells will be returned.
