This museum pays tribute to our veterans from World War II and the Korean War. Among the museum’s displays are rare books and memoirs detailing the WW2 resistance movement, original handwritten accounts of the war, samurais, pistols and other war memorabilia, and old foreign and local currencies.
“Through the museum, we want to tell the nation and our youth the story of the war guerrillas,” says VFP president Colonel Emmanuel de Ocampo. “We want to tell them that during our time, we were not enjoying the movies or watching television or whiling our time away in malls like most are doing today. We were out in the trenches and the front-lines fighting a war for our country.”
