Amerasians: America’s Forgotten Children


In January 2011, I visited the former US military bases in the Philippines: Subic Naval Base and Clark Air Base. In 1992, the United States military left the Philippines. I thought they took everything with them. But they left behind 50,000 Amerasian children whose fathers were American sailors and their mothers were assumed to be prostitutes. These Amerasians are America’s forgotten children.

Mark Gilbore (standing on the right) gives Dale Asis (on the left) a tour of Angeles City's red light district with the infamous bar girls standing outside the bars

Meet Mark Gilbore.  He’s 6’4”. He’s black and he would not be out-of-place in Chicago. However, Mark has never been in Chicago. In fact, he’s never been in the US. He doesn’t even know his father. He grew up with his mother in Angeles City, near Clark Air Force Base. He speaks fluent Tagalog and the local dialect, Kapampangan. I never heard him speak English.

I had dinner with Mark. Before we ate, he rolled up his pant leg and put his leg up in the wooden stool.  He ate with his hands, Filipino style. He likes to eat rice, a lot of rice.  At that moment, I knew Mark was more Filipino than I was. However, Mark does not ‘look’ Filipino. He looks like he belongs in Chicago.

The children of African-American soldiers are especially singled out and ridiculed.  Mark confided in me that he suffered a lot of discrimination growing up. They called him names. But most of all, he grew up with the social stigma of being an illegitimate child and unable to elude prejudice because it shows in his physical features.

Many Amerasian children are labeled Iniwan ng Barko (left by the ship). I met some of them during my visit there. They were eagerly planning a celebration for ‘Amerasian Day’ , one of the rare occasions where Amerasians are acknowledged officially.  A local organization, WeDpro, Inc. is giving them support in their upcoming plans.  Each one of them shared with me their tragic stories of discrimination and prejudice.

In 1982, the United States Congress voted to grant U.S. citizenship to Amerasians from Vietnam, Korea, Thailand, and other Asian countries, in what was known as the Amerasian Homecoming Act. Although the Philippines has been a United States ally for more than a century, Filipino (and Japanese) offspring of soldiers were not included: they must be claimed by their former American G.I. fathers if they wish to claim their U.S. citizenship.

I asked Mark if he was also looking for his father in the US. He said no; he’s at peace not finding him.  I asked him what made him such a strong person despite growing up in the midst of discrimination and prejudice. “My mother. He raised up me to be proud of who I am,” Mark said.

What does the future hold for these forgotten children of the post-war world? What moral obligation does the US have to America’s forgotten children?  Do they have to find their fathers in the US to find peace? Will their fathers and their families accept their Amerasian offspring? Will these Amerasians even adjust to life in the US after living in the Philippines all their lives? Or does the local Filipino society have to accept these forgotten children and not discriminate against them?

    We must continue to support the Amerasians.
    Although majority of them have developed into respectable citizens, yet, those who did not know their father, continued to hope, that, their father will come for them.
    The attempt to amend Public Law, 97-359, aka the Amerasian Immigration Act of 1982 failed as a stand alone Bill. The only hope that the Amerasians who are now over 18 years old, is the Comprehensive Immigration Refoarm for America’s Safety and Progress, H.R. 432. WE look forward to see that the injustice to the Amerasian children is rectified. We must continue to encourage each other.

    • daleasis says:

      Hello Ernesto,

      Thank you for reading my blog and your encouraging comments supporting the cause of the Amerasian children, America’s forgotten children. Thank you for sharing about the upcoming bill H.R. 432 in US Congress that might provide relief to the Amerasians. I hope that I’ll contact you separately and find out more about this.

      • Timmy Jean says:

        Good day,

        2 years ago i found my father through internet, i grow up knowing that his dead 20 years ago.
        my only proof is that he signed my birth certificate as my father,we communicate and did some test or DNA test.
        Then i applied for a tourist visa in MANILA, so we could meet each other but i was denied.
        My father filed a petition for me last year , it was denied as well , then my father filed an appeal this year and we still waiting for the result, they ask the same requirements that we submitted before.
        I was thinking to apply a G.I BABY LAW? is there anything you can suggest, because i’m not sure that filing an appeal won’t work, and waiting for nothing. Why is it that hard?
        Please help me.

        Thank you,
        Tj

      • daleasis says:

        Hello TJ,

        Thank you for reading my blog. I have not heard of the “G.I. Baby Law”. However, I know about the Amerasian Act of 1982, which allowed Amerasian children in Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and South Korea to immigrate. Unfortunately, Filipino Amerasians have been excluded from this law. You can learn more about our this legislation from this link I strongly suggest that you consult with a US immigration lawyer to help you with your appeal. US immigration laws are complex and complicated. I hope this info is helpful.

        Sincerely,
        Dale Asis

  3. Ali Khan says:

    I am deeply honored that there exist platforms such as this site that
    embrace a vision of reuniting estranged families. Like thousands of
    other Americans, my father served during WWII and was stationed
    in the Philippines. My father enlisted at Ft. Bragg, NC on June 17,
    1943, and honorably discharged from the US Army April 8, 1946.
    Records (national Personnel Records Center) display service with
    the Fifth Army Replacement Depot. A fire at the center on July 12,
    1973 damaged or destroyed many military records resulting in
    fragmented data. My father’s resident during deployment is shown
    as Hobgood, NC. He was enlisted under the name Woodrow Camp.
    On July 8, 1991, my father passed while a patient at the Veterans
    Medical Center in East Orange, NJ. He was born May 25, 1925 and
    therefore was in his teens during service. He is of African American
    ethnicity, and like many others share an ethnic connection with other
    ethnicities (African, Asian, Caucasian and Native American), Although
    my family was aware that there was possibly an offspring left in the
    Philippines (letters sent by the mother to my grandmothers address
    in NC), there was never an effort to reach out to them. Again, thank you
    for your noble efforts.

    Best regards,

    Ali Khan

  4. Jimmy says:

    Are there legitimate ways of finding possible children? I was one of the sailors that may have left behind a child and I am interesting in finding out how I may find him/her. I was there in 1984 and mostly stayed out in Barrio Baretto which is were my girlfried stayed. What would be a wise first step?

    • daleasis says:

      Hello Jimmy,
      Unfortunately, there is no central database where you could find Amerasian children and for them to find their fathers in the US. Several organizations and websites purport to fill in that need but I have not verified their credibility. I could connect you with the local nonprofit organizations in the Philippines that the Bayanihan Foundation has worked with; I could vouch for their reputation and credibility. They might be able to provide some leading information. Please email me at dale@fdnbayanihan.org or call me at (773) 273-9793 if you have any additional questions. THANK YOU for reading my blog!

    • Christine says:

      Sir Jimmy,
      I am an Amerisian child from Olongapo City. May I know what is the name of your girlfriend if you could still remember her name. I was born 1985 and my mother is from Barrio Baretto. My mom died last 2004 and she never mentioned the name of my father that is why I am having a difficult time looking for him. I was intrigued when you mentioned Barrio Baretto and the year 1984, you never know :)

    • Christine says:

      I think this website could be helpful in your search for your child http://amerasianfamilyfinder.org/index.html

      • daleasis says:

        Hello Christine,

        Unfortunately the Bayanihan Foundation does not have direct services to help Filipino Amerasians find their lost loved ones. Please direct your attention to the foundation’s Philippine based partners, Wedpro and Buklod. I’m also glad that you found other resources on the web to help you in you in your search.

  6. jomaira bayabao says:

    hi there!!I was looking for a site that will help me to find my stepfather long lost dad.And I came in to this site.I really want to help my stepfather to find his dad.His mother left him when he was a baby in the care of his grandmother.In his story when he was 1-7 years old he receives money from his father.But because of greed of his relatives they kept the truth from him,that his father is still sending money to him.And finally when his grandmother died all his relatives left him at the streets.He grow up as an street child,but thanks to the help of other people and also because he’s a hard-working child,many people helped him in change of food and shelter.Until now he’s still longing for his lost dad.He doesn’t care about wealth or something he just want to know if his father is still alive.Can you advise us what to do?Thank you and I’m looking forward to your reply!God bless!

    • daleasis says:

      Hello Jomaira,

      Maraming salamat! Thank you for reading my blog. I could forward your comment to someone who might be able to help your friend locate his father. The Bayanihan Foundation does not provide that service at this time. However, the foundation supports leadership development and training of the United Philippine Amerasians (UPA), group created and organized by Filipino Amerasians. The foundation partners with Wedpro and Buklod in this project.

        My father was in WW2 and left a son behind. I was told of this after my father had passed in 1988 but the important thing was that my father did send support money for years until the letters started coming back. We would like to find our brother left behind what would be our first step? My fathers name was Richard Leslie Nolind.

  9. Bill Humphrey says:

    Hi Dale,

    I’m trying to help an Amerasian friend from Angeles City locate her American father. He was an Airman stationed at Clark. She told me her father is on her baptismal certificate, so I know he at least acknowledged her as his child once before. He was evacuated before Pinatubo erupted and has had no contact since. I have his name but it is fairly common here is the US.

    Can you recommend any websites for fathers seeking their Amerasian children, particularly in Philippines? Perhaps he is looking for her also. One can hope. :-) Thanks for creating this blog.

  13. Lynda Philips says:

    My father, Thomas Guntrum, a Vietnam Veteran, did two tours of duty in Vietnam, 1966-1968. He met my mother, Oanh Le, in Vietnam, married her in 1967. (She was not a “prostitute”) Their first child was born, Oct. 28, 1968. He was discharged from the U.S. Army after his tour was over, Oct. 30, 1968. He told my Mom, he would be back….he kept his promise….he came back. He left the U.S. w/only $15 in his pocket and was back in Vietnam with his wife and child. He was arrested by the Vietnamese Gov’t when he went back, he was an illegal alien. Somehow, he got out of that. He stayed in Vietnam and worked as a civilian to be w/his family. I was born Dec. 1969. He would go back to the U.S. periodically, but he always went back to his wife and children. He spent almost 5 more years of his life in Vietnam working as a civilian and trying to keep his wife near her family as long as he could. They had two more children, born Nov. 1971, and March 1973. He never left us, he brought his wife and 4 children back to the U.S. with him on May 3, 1973. You never here of the men who did not leave their family behind. He had Mental problems since Vietnam, spent many years in and out of mental facilities, endured shock therapy, heavily medicated. Developed Tardive Dyskinesia in his early 40’s. Through it all, my parents remained together, they loved eachother deeply. Dad, our true hero, a true man, passed away May 4, 2012, from a 4 year battle with Colon Cancer. Our hearts will always be broken. I wish people could know of what a wonderful man he was, by not leaving his children behind, but no one seems to want to know about someone that actually did such a thing, all they care about is the ones that left their children behind. He was a true legacy. I wished his story could be told for all to know. I love you Dad. Please see my video on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Whh9Wl6akIg Would you know of anyone that would like to tell his story?
    Sincerely,
    His daughter, Lynda Philips

    • daleasis says:

      Hello Lynda,

      Hello James,

      Thank you for reading my blog. However, I do not practice immigration law and US immigration laws are complex and complicated that you really need competent legal advice. The Bayanihan Foundation does not provide direct legal services to help Amerasian children navigate these complicated US immigration laws. Please refer to the foundation’s partners Wedpro http://wedprophils.org/ for further information. You can also contact this website for additional information or assistance: http://www.amerasianregistry.yolasite.com/ They might be able to help. Please note that is for referral purposes only; this website is not officially affiliated with the Bayanihan Foundation. I hope that this is helpful. Maraming salamat. Thank you.

      Sincerely,
      Dale Asis
