Kids ‘know little’ about US landing


AT LEAST three students, who were among those who witnessed yesterday’s commemoration of the arrival of the American forces in Talisay City’s coastline on March 26, 1945, admitted that they do not know much about the history of the Talisay landing. The students said they were only there because they were required by their schools to attend the activity.


The reenactment yesterday marked the 70th anniversary of the Talisay landing.


For the first time, more than 91 visiting United States (US) veterans witnessed the commemoration yesterday.
