By the way let me tell you something about my veteran grandfather, his name was Nicanor Luz as of today his physical condition was still okay in spite of his old age, he can still walk, he don't have difficulties in hearing and the only problem is he got some loss of his memory, he can't recognize most of his family. But if you ask him about the war and how fight, he can still remember every bit of the story. Until now he still have the anger against the Japanese, when you told him that there is a Japanese near by he closed his fist and say "where are those Japanese I will kill them, they make us all suffer". I know that he suffered a lot and sacrifice a lot, that's why until now he can still feel that way.
The sacrifices of every Filipino veterans during the WWII is really priceless, but still we should be thankful that US still recognizes all their efforts for fighting our freedom.
