Waipahu Exhibit Commemorates Filipino WWI and WWII Veterans

November 11 is Veteran’s Day. To commemorate this event, Waipahu Public Library is displaying exhibits on Filipino veterans of World War I and World War II.

The Filipino-American Historical Society of Hawaii (FAHSOH) will be hosting a presentation to provide historical contexts, contradictions, and discussions in order to dig deeper into the history of Filipinos during the two World Wars especially how these events affected Filipino’s experiences at that time.

Titled “Remembering Our Filipino WWI and WWII Veterans,” the exhibit is free and open to the public.

The FAHSOH in-person presentation will be held on November 18 from 10 to 11:30am at Waipahu Public Library. For those who won’t be able to attend in person, online ZOOM access is also available.

For more information, visit FAHSOH’s website at www.fahsoh.org.
