On Veterans’ Day, I can’t help but reflect on the sacrifices made by Filipino American veterans during World War II.  What used to be a hot topic in the Fil-Am community in 2007 and 2008 due to the house bills is now a forgotten issue.

Here’s a look back at select articles and links on the Filipino Veterans’ Equity Act of 2008:
