Senator Nancy Binay's Araw ng Kagitingan statement

We honor today each and every Filipino war veteran, who with their sacrifice and bravery seven decades ago, ensured that our great country will live on.

These gallant men gave their all so that we in the present, as well as future generations, can enjoy the independence they have won for us. They fought a superior foe in the trenches of Bataan and Corregidor, from Luzon to Mindanao, but they endured and gallantly held on until our liberty is secured.

All of us remember today the countless men and women - their blood, sweat and tears - who showed the world that freedom is worth fighting and dying for.

We face different threats to our freedoms today, but the fighting spirit of the Filipino lives in each and every one of us, ready to stand and defend the islands we call home.

The sun will set, but we will never forget.

Mabuhay ang kalayaan!

Mabuhay ang ating mga beterano!
