City officials, World War II and post-war veterans, and their families are commemorating the 76th Araw ng Kagitingan on April 9 at the Veterans Park in Harrison Road.

The program starts at 8 a.m. with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Veterans’ Monument led by Rep. Marquez Go, Mayor Mauricio Domogan, and Vice Mayor Edison Bilog with the veterans, sons and daughters of veterans, and other guests.

Cadets from the Philippine Military Academy will execute the traditional 21-gun salute, as the PMA band later plays the melancholy single-bugle call, Taps.

Philippine Military Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Donato San Juan II is the guest of honor and speaker.

San Juan II of the PMA Maharlika Class 1984 is a well trained, bemedalled soldier who served for 33 years in various positions of the Armed Forces until his appointment as PMA superintendent in 2016. He was also recognized in community and non-combat pursuits.

He will be introduced by City Administrator Carlos Canilao.

Go and Domogan will give their messages and will lead the recognition of World War II veterans.

The Igorot World War II veterans from Baguio and its suburbs have always been recognized as “excellent fighting men,” according to Gen. Arthur MacArthur, as quoted in a Pittsburgh, U.S.A. newspaper, in 1942. The “fighting men” were with the surrender and joined the Death March of Bataan to Tarlac, which claimed the lives of joint US-Filipino forces, commemorated today as Araw ng Kagitingan.

Bilog will deliver the closing message.

The theme for this year’s commemorative ceremonies is “Kagitingan at pagmamahal sa Pilipinas para sa tunay na pagbabago.”  

Araw ng Kagitingan precedes the commemoration of Baguio’s Liberation on April 27.
