  3. Good day po.. I'm not sure if this event was included during my school history class.. but i have just known this recently.. Someone should make a BOOK out of this event so that they will not be forgotten.. or a movie should be made about them detailing there hardships, their spirit and courage in standing-their ground..

  4. Has anyone written a book about the FEFTOK, it would be a fitting memorial for our brave Filipino soldiers.. i know that it is called the "Forgotten War" but we Filipinos should not forget about them..
