Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Facebook: Meeting with Filipino Veterans Recognition and Education Project

November 16, 2017
Press Release

"The United States is forever grateful for the service, bravery, and perseverance of the more than 260,000 Filipino and Filipino American soldiers that served our country during World War II. These loyal and courageous soldiers suffered hardships, fought bravely, and sacrificed greatly, with many giving up their lives alongside their American counterparts throughout the war, yet their service was left unrecognized in the United States for decades.  A few weeks ago, we welcomed many of these brave soldiers to the U.S. Capitol and awarded them with the Congressional Gold Medal—our nation’s highest civilian honor. Mahalo to General Taguba, the Filipino Veterans Recognition and Education Project, and all the champions of our Filipino WWII veterans who spent decades fighting for this important recognition." - TG
