Message, Malaca?an Palace, Manila:
This memorial is dedicated to the Filipino-Chinese veterans of the Second World War who bravely fought Japanese invaders in defense of our country's honor, freedom and democracy.
Undoubtedly, these courageous men and women went through untold human sufferings and deprivations. But the will to fight and liberate the country from the claws of the enemies kept the spirit of perseverance and camaraderie undiminished among these freedom fighters.
Today, we pay tribute to these unsung heroes. Reminiscing with gratefulness their wartime efforts and sacrifices and enkindling among our new generations the torch of solidarity, cooperation, dedication and nationalism.
Let the tragedy of war, the victory gained through self-sacrifice and the blessings received through hard work and resourcefulness serve as a reminder and as a model for the attainment of peace and prosperity in our country.
Mabuhay Ang Pilipinas! Mabuhay Tayong Lahat!
Fidel V. Ramos [President]
