Make Sure America Keeps Its Promise to America's Fallen Heroes at Clark Veterans Cemetery

Tell Congress to Pass House Bill HR 4168 (The Caring for the Fallen Act) and Senate Bill S 2320 (Remembering America's Forgotten Veterans Cemetery Act of 2012).

In 1991, the Clark Veterans Cemetery was abandoned by the United States Government when our Armed Forces unceremoniously left the Philippines and closed Clark Air Force Base.  Left behind were 8,600 American service members, veterans and their families.  The heroes that rest in this cemetery include those who fought in every conflict between the Philippine American War through World War II and up to this very day.  More details about the cemetery can be found at www.cvcra.org

Senate Bill 2320 and House Resolution 4168 are two simple bills that require the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC)—the agency responsible for all other American military cemeteries in foreign countries—to assume responsibility for the cemetery and to maintain it in perpetuity.  These bills simply require the ABMC to do what it should have done a long time ago.

Please join us in our effort to protect and honor the fallen heroes at Clark Veterans Cemetery.  By clicking on the petition tool below, you will quickly be able to generate a letter urging your Representative & Senators to pass to pass HR 4168 (The Caring for the Fallen Act) & S 2320 (Remembering America’s Forgotten Veterans Cemetery Act of 2012).  Once the letter has been generated, you can add your own personal touches on the edit screen, and then click “send”.

The entire process only takes a few minutes to complete and will have a significant impact on whether these two important bills are passed.  It is the least we can do for our fallen heroes at Clark Veterans Cemetery.

EVERY veteran, alive or not, deserves recognition in perpetuity. How can you not sign this bill into law? If it weren't for our veterans, we may not have to freedom and blessed opportunity to be writing such messages to our Congress!

My grandfather was interred in Canacao Naval Hospital Cemetery, Sangley Point, Cavite. After WWII, his remains were moved to Clark Veterans Cemeter. The ABMC should take over maintaining the cemetery in perpetuity as it does all other military cemeteries abroad.
