World War II Veterans Demand Compensation at Federal Building

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

These days in Congress, it’s

S 1315 
HR 6897

Or in other words, what’s the best way to compensate Filipinos who served alongside American troops¬†during World War II?

This was the scene yesterday in from of the Old Federal Building on Golden Gate:

Some people have given up on Senate Bill S1315, which would provide a pension to the veterans, but others still believe it can become law.

We’ll find out soon enough, it looks like.
