More than 16,000 Veterans Claims Denied as Feb 16 Deadline Ends

Los Angeles— The Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV), a national alliance of veterans, youth, students and community organizations and activist for veterans rights based in Los Angeles expressed disgust as the DVA announced that it has denied 16,000 claims for lump sum.

JFAV media coordinator Joy Alonica Bautista said, “ This is an outrage considering that the US and Philippine government made so much political capital of the lump sum.

Now, the truth is out. That they have taken the Filipinos and the Filipino-American community and our veterans for a ride. This is another dirty act and a living proof of racism. ”

Corpus Pledge to help the Veterans

On the Veterans Recognition Day last on February 1, 2010 at the Filipino American Community of Los Angeles (FACLA) Social Hall, ret. Gen. Victor Corpus, Office of Veterans Affairs (OVA) reported the matter.

“ I am ready to listen and help. We will help the 16,000 veterans to make their appeal. I am a son of and my grandfather is a veteran. I fell what you feel. Being left out and discriminated by the system.” Said Corpus, a one-time NPA guerilla fighter and then a rebel returnee to the Philippine government.

Corpus, a graduate of PMA Class 1967 joined the new people's Army and was captured in 1976. He was imprisoned for eight years and rejoined the AFP after being amnestied by President Aquino in 1986. He was promoted to general by President Arroyo and retired in 2004. He is now the head of the Office of Veterans Affairs of the Philippine Embassy inWashington DC.

One Year Appeal Process for 16,000 denials

“ According to the DVA the appeals process will only last for one year this will be our stress and is our commitment.” Percival Abu, veteran’s liaison for the Philippine Embassy said.

According to the DVA, more than 11,000 have received their lump sum claims until Feb.1, 2010. More than 34,000 applications were received by the DVA. But JFAV reiterated than less than 3,000 Filipino veterans in the US have received their claims.

Meanwhile, to commemorate the 64th year of the unjust and racist Rescission act of 1946, the The KmB (Pro People Youth) will be holding an event called “LOVE FOR THE PEOPLE” to commemorate the event at SIPA on February 18, 2010 at 6:30 PM.

SIPA is located on 3200.W. Temple St, Los Angeles, CA 90026.
