VETERANOS


"ES UNA GLORIA PARA TUS HIJOS CUANDO TE OFENDEN...POR TI MORIR !"

an excerpt from the Philippine National Anthem




1946, at the Manila North Cemetery stood a memorial...

 


A young veteran of WWII met with some veterans of the Revolution and Philippine-American War

 


Two of the finest generations of Filipinos frozen in time by a photograph

 


That same young veteran in khaki is now much older than those aged warriors he once stood beside,and a new generation has donned the rayadillo uniform of those who have passed unto eternity

 


...to commemorate that meeting of heroes, one day in 1946.
