Bills introduced to: the U.S. Senate (S) & the U.S. House of Representatives (HR)  that died in the committee. We are listing them here for the ff. reasons:
 
1) to acknowledge & profusely thank loyal supporters of the Filipino WW11 veterans, especially the sponsors of the legislative bills
 
2) to find if we could get some of our academician interested in performing  a forensic study, sort of autopsy- what is the cause of the demise of these bills?
 
3) to find out if these (perennial) bills qualify in entering the Guinness World Records (category? " United States oldest unpaid payroll") or Dave Letterman's List (category? "Death March was a cakewalk compared to these"  list)

With their fiber helmets and canvas shoes, they were armed with little more than personal courage. These valiant men deserve no less than recognition of their military service and fairness under the law…Proper recognition and honor of the military service of these Filipino veterans is long overdue…My bill mirrors Sen DANIEL INOUYE's S. 68

Re:HR 760 (excerpt) Source:Military Update: House members bitterly fight over veterans’ pensions By Tom Philpott, Stars and Stripes Pacific edition, 8/11/2007 (Rep Steve) Buyer, from Indiana...Army Reserve colonel — someone, he says of himself, who “has served his nation for 27 years of war and peace. You walk into my office and immediately say, ‘I can tell this is a military guy." (Rep Bob) Filner, a native of New York City, claims in his official biography to have “spent several months in a southern jail as a ‘Freedom Rider’ in the Civil Rights movement.” ...“You go into his office and there’s a huge picture of him being arrested,” Buyer said. “He prides himself on having been a Vietnam War protester.”...That difference in background explains the “volatility” of their relationship, Buyer said. “Because you’ve got one who has been schooled in honor and in trust and all the virtues and values that go with military bearing. And you put that with someone who is a public activist, anti-institution and doesn’t give a damn about the rules and you’re going to have conflict.” Filner: ...“If he were fighting for veterans as much as he’s fighting me, we’d all be better off.”...shrugged off the criticism, noting Filipino veterans haven’t received any compensation for 60 years and most don’t have long to live.
