Goodnight President George H.W. Bush: After waiting in line for two hours in his wheel chair, Filipino American WWII veteran Celestino Almeda, 101, saluted and bid goodbye to the former U.S. commander-in-chief as he lay in state in the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday evening. “Thank you! I owe you my U.S. citizenship,” Almeda wrote in the condolence guest book for the Bush family. The Immigration and Naturalization Act was signed into law in 1990 by President Bush that granted American citizenship to loyal USAFFE Filipino WWII veterans. It was witnessed by veteran leader Mr. Patrick Ganio Sr. then. Maraming salamat po!
