 FYI : 4th of July has nothing to do with WW II, it is the day the declaration of independence from the British was signed in 1776

 I can't find anything about British involvement in the Philippines in 1776, please list your reference.

What I did find was at this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Philippines_%281946%E2%80%931965%29

The official date of the release of the Philippines from the Japanese was set up on July 4, 1946 and I suppose it could cause some confusion.

If I remember correctly, it was to thank the U.S. not only for the return of democracy, but also a thank you for promising to repair as much war damage as possible in the Philippines which was savagely damaged by the war.

I find it rather odd that WWII doesn't seem to be taught in history classes in the Philippines.

I sent my wife's youngest sister through school and she had no idea as to who the players were or even that the Philippines was involved in any way.

Silliman had a big collection of WWII photos in  the library.     Maybe they don't  want to evoke anti Japanese  sentiments.
