On this day, seventy-six years ago, democracy returned and the Pearl of the Orient was finally liberated from years of torment. Standing courageously as the main line of resistance, the Filipino troops forced General Tomoyuki Yamashita and his army to surrender, ending the Japanese occupation in the country. 🕊

When the night passes and dawn comes again, we shall remember them. Let the Filipino's contribution to the war be justly honored today.
