The contributions of Filipino and Chinese American WWII veterans were almost completely erased and ignored over the last 90 years. However, advocates fought to ensure that these veterans received the awards they were promised when they were asked to fight on behalf of the United States. Advocates have worked and succeeded in securing Congressional Gold Medals, the highest award a US civilian can receive, for these veterans and their next-of-kin. Hear from these folks about the tactics they used to get Congress to unanimously sign off on this legislation.
