SYNOPSIS

In 1941 Filipino forces were conscripted into the U.S. Army. During WWII 260,000 Filipino troops fought. After their service, Congress declared the forces to be on inactive duty. Today, tens of thousands of veterans remain unacknowledged. In the documentary “Legacy of the Fighting Filipinos,” their stories are rediscovered with a bid to repeal the 1946 Act of Congress as unconstitutional.
