by Venus H. Sarmiento

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, Jan. 06 (PIA) –- The province is set to celebrate the 67th Anniversary of the Lingayen Gulf Landings on January 9 at the Veterans Memorial Park here.

The event is in commemoration of the historic event when U.S. Gen. Douglas MacArthur and his allied forces landed on the shores of Pangasinan in 1945 to liberate the Philippines from Japanese occupation.

The annual celebration is the first major event in the province every year and is usually attended by all surviving World War II veterans and their families, national and local government officials, and a good representation from various sectors.

The special event will be graced by representatives from the embassies of the United States, Australia, Canada, Britain and Japan.

Governor Amado T. Espino said this year’s guest of honor and speaker will be former President Fidel Valdez Ramos. Ramos himself a decorated war veteran and a native of Pangasinan, hails from Asingan town. (ANL/VHS-PIA 1 Pangasinan)
