SUPPORT FILIPINO WORLD WAR II VETERANS


FilVetREP

On October 25, 2017, leaders of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives will bestow Filipino veterans of World War II with the Congressional Gold Medal. These veterans fought alongside American soldiers to defend the United States, but after the war were deprived of the military benefits they were promised in exchange for their sacrifice.

As only one physical medal will be minted for the collective veterans, NFALA is raising funds to support the Filipino Veterans Recognition and Education Project (FilVetREP) and its campaign to obtain replicas for individual veterans and their families as well as long-term efforts to promote legacy preservation and educational programs nationwide.

To donate, please visit NFALA's fundraising page for FilVetREP and encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to give likewise. On this page, you may also indicate your affiliation with a local Fil-Am bar organization. The NFALA affiliate that raises the most money for medal replicas will be recognized at the 3rd Annual NFALA Gala & Installation Dinner on November 2!

Your contributions will go directly to FilVetREP, an IRS approved 501c(3), tax exempt, nonprofit, charitable organization since January 14, 2015.
