MESSAGE OF SPEAKER LORD ALLAN VELASCO ON THE COMMEMORATION OF ARAW NG KAGITINGAN
We join the entire nation in commemorating Araw ng Kagitingan or Day of Valor, which marks the greatness of Filipino fighters during World War II. Exactly 80 years ago today, our courageous predecessors offered their lives to defend our freedom and democracy. And for that, we are forever grateful to them.
As we honor the bravery and patriotism of our fallen war heroes during one of the most important events in our history, we also take time to applaud and appreciate our modern-day heroes such as our dedicated COVID-19 frontliners, our hard working overseas Filipino workers, and our valiant soldiers. We can’t thank them enough for their selfless acts and sacrifices for the greater good.
Isang taimtim at makabuluhang pagdiriwang ng Araw ng Kagitingan sa ating lahat! #
