Commemorating “Araw ng Kagitingan,” or Day of Valor, and Filipino heroes of WWII

As Filipinos commemorate “Araw ng Kagitingan,” or Day of Valor, and the sacrifices of WWII manongs for freedom and democracy — some Filipinos fear that very same freedom and Philippine sovereignty are now being threatened.

Philippine ambassador to the US, Jose Manuel Romualdez, joined veterans at a wreath-laying ceremony to honor the Filipino WWII heroes who sacrificed their lives for freedom in both America and in the Philippines.

Filipino Americans in DC are urging President Duterte to uphold Philippine sovereignty, as China continues to invade and occupy disputed islands in the West Philippine Sea.
