More than six decades after the struggle for full equity for Filipino World War II veterans was waged, it was still the battle cry at this year's Filipinas Magazine Annual Awards. Among the honorees were Olympic gold medalist in swimming Natalie Coughlin; and [Ret.] Gen. Antonio Taguba, who blew the lid off the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, and is also a staunch ally for the veterans. Community leaders also shared their views on the upcoming presidential elections. Odette Keeley and Min Lee are video producers for New America Media.
