Lest we forget

Wearing this for my Lolo Isiong who served his country during World War II. I am also wearing this for Tomas Claudio, the first Filipino casualty during the First World War. He apparently died in a battlefield in France. Did you know that as a then colony of the United States, 25,000 Filipinos volunteered when the US gov't called for volunteers to join the Philippine militia? To Lolo Isiong and all the brave men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom, peace and sovereignty, for those who serve their countries in the armed forces, we are forever grateful. Because of you, we enjoy the freedoms that we sometimes take for granted. #remember #poppy #poppyappeal #lestweforget #dayofremembrance #soldiers #FilipinosinWWI ##heroinmyfamily #proudgranddaughter
