Filipino-American Friendship Park

The Filipino-American Friendship Park commemorates the close friendship between the Philippines and the United States. These close ties are symbolized by two statues of wartime buddies giving each other aid and comfort during the defense of the Philippines in World War II.

The inscription in the center headstone was written by Brig. Gen. Lee Telesco. It says:  "In these hallowed surroundings where heroes sleep, may their ashes scatter with the wind and live in the hearts of those who were left behind. They died for freedom's right, and in heaven's sight, theirs was a just cause."
