More than 150,000 Filipinos immigrated to the United States from the
Philippines between 1906 and 1935, in search of the American Dream. Facing discrimination and hard times here in California and all along the west coast, thousands of Filipinos worked in agricultural fields, in the service industry, and in other low paying jobs. The war provided the opportunity for Filipinos to fight for the United States and prove their loyalty as Americans. At top strength the Regiments, known as "California's Own," numbered 7,000 strong.
The F.A.N.H.S Sacramento-Delta Chapter will present the film "Unsurrendered 2", a video
documentary of the lives and stories the Filipino Guerrillas and "Bolomen" of World War ll. This year
is the 75th anniversary of the Bataan Death March, and Filipino communities across the country will
be commemorating it's historical significance.
