This is a special place to visit. Names of those killed or missing in action are displayed on huge tablets all around and it's mind-blowing to see all those thousands of crosses each depicting someone who was killed in the wars.

The world war killed more than 32k Philippines, and that's a good way to remember them, in a nice and safe park-cemetery, worth it to visit

It is just amazing how the American government pays tribute to thier soldiers thousand miles away from the country. Amazing is the word. Calm, Serene and majestic.
