Many Filippinos, including my family, got citizenship through the US Navy. Because of this, my family’s history is inextricably linked to the events of WWII in the Philippines to the Cold War and Vietnam is America.  Through 5 timelines—historical, family tree, Tita Cora’s life accounts, Lola’s life accounts, and photos—this timeline explores those interconnections from the Philippines gaining independence to the immigration to the US and beyond.
