A Day before the Balangiga Battle during Phil-Am War in 1901

CHICAGO, USA, 9/27/2015 - On the eve, the Battle for the Town of Balangiga in E. Samar turned tragic for both sides during the Philippine-American War that day on September 28, 1901.

Soon to turn another year old, the church congregation listens to Filipino WWII Jaime Pesongco, a Visayan; speak about the Bells of Balangiga of 113 years ago.  The group gives the entire WWII veterans their support for their courage and sacrifices that help saved the Philippines during the Japanese invasion, and for their continued efforts to increase awareness and encouraged open dialogs with other US veteran groups and elected US Officials.  The Filipino WWII veterans’ are planning their kick-off campaign the following day for Monday, September 28, 2015 hosted by the FDR Post923 of the American Legion.

In a recent preplanned event a couple months back on May 6th by Philippine President Aquino’s visit to Chicago, absent from the guest list, VIP or otherwise were these same statesmen who answered the call to protect their motherland, the Philippines in 1942.  Phone calls of inquiry were made to the PhilConGen Generoso Calonge of the Philippine Consulate General Chicago as to if they will be considered invitees for this honorable occasion?  No answer from any Consul Representative of the Philippine Government out of Chicago since that time.

As for the Philippine Senators who have written positive notes and letters for the actions of our Filipino veterans we extend our praise and gratitude on their behalf for your kind support, especially from those that are also proponents for the return of these historic bells of controversy.  We hope that when tomorrow comes at least one of the four Consuls will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with these aging WWII icons if not as Philippine National heroes, then for their commitment to bring education and share the story of the church bells from the Town of Balangiga, E. Samar that were removed 113 years.
