Here is some video from last Sunday (September 8, 2013) at the 71st Annual Maywood Bataan Day. It covers the presentation by Manong Jaime Pesongco, a Philippine WWII veteran and guerilla. His presentation was read by his son since Jaime is recovering from a bout of COPD. After his presentation, Mr. Pesongco is presented with medals earned almost 70 years ago, while serving with the USAFFE in the Philippines during WWII. Next year, I think we’ll live stream the entire event, allowing people around the globe to watch in real time. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
