PETITION FOR THE US CONGRESS TO IMMEDIATELY CALL A JOINT CONFERENCE COMMITTEE AND RECONCILE FILIPINO VETERANS BILLS NOW!
Restore Section 4 of SB 1315 for the Filipino Veterans
and junk HR 6897—the quit claim bill.

We call on the US Congress to immediately call a joint conference committee and reconcile SB 1315 and HR 6897, which were both passed at the House of Representatives last September 22, 2008.

We demand that the joint US Congress conference committee restore the provision in SB 1315 on the Filipino Veterans, the full recognition and benefits for the last surviving veterans, for the widows and relatives of the Filipino World War II Veterans. Provide justice and equity to the surviving 18,000 Filipino World War II veterans who served valiantly the United States during the Second World War. They deserve recognition, honor, respect and their benefits.
