Araw ng

Kagitingan

In 1989, by virtue of Proclamation No. 466, President Corazon C. Aquino declared the period of April 5 to 11 of every year as the PHILIPPINE VETERANS WEEK. This is to promote, preserve, and memorialize the principles, ideals and deeds of our war veterans as a means to enhance patriotism and love for country, especially among the youth.

This week-long observance is an occasion to honor not only the Filipino war veterans who fought during World War II but all those who rendered honorable military service in defending the country in time of war or peace. Since then, annual commemorations are held in shrines that stand as reminders of our courageous past.
