New Veterans Bank features World War II history of Baguio

The Philippine Veterans Bank re-opened its renovated Baguio branch featuring World War II stories in time for the 72nd anniversary of the Liberation of Baguio last week.

PVB Vice President for Corporate and Consumer Relations Mike Villa-Real said the new Baguio branch showcases a history wall that has several panels dedicated to local WWII events in Baguio City. It has another panel with a display monitor that continuously screens WWII documentaries and photos.

There are also two display cases that contain artifacts, paraphernalia, and memorabilia from the war, which when combined with the history wall, makes a visit to PVB Baguio almost like a trip to a museum.

PVB Baguio, now located at Pine Lake View Building, Rizal Park Road 1 corner Otek Street, sports a new façade with a large “V” that is not only a nod to the bank’s stockholders – the over 300,000 Filipino WWII veterans – but also a symbol of the aggressive outlook that the bank has of the city. This aggressiveness is easily dispelled once inside the branch as the interiors convey a sense of comfort and homeliness.

“We want to show to the public the local history. Some of the schools are teaching the national history that is why we want to show and highlight the bravery of our WWII veterans for them also to appreciate,” Villa-Real said.

To let the public know about the city’s history, the PVB Baguio branch is open and free for students, locals, and tourists.

“This is our objective as we would like to share that Baguio City is rich as to WWII history since many incidents happened here,” he added.

City Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Rep. Mark Go and Benguet Gov. Cresencio Pacalso led the inauguration ceremonies together with officials of Veterans Federation of the Philippines, Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, and surviving WWII veterans of Baguio.
