Philippine Veterans Bank inaugurates its World War II History Wall at its newly renovated San Fernando Pampanga Branch in a ceremony led by Governor Lilia Pineda and City Mayor Edwin Santiago. On the side of the Bank, PVB President and COO Nonilo C. Cruz, along with Branch Banking Group Head SVP Vilma A.
The centerpiece of the renovated branch, the World War II History Wall – tells the story of World War II in the Philippines with several of the panels dedicated to local WWII events that have happened in the Province of Pampanga. The branch also has two (2) display cases that contain artifacts, paraphernalia, and memorabilia from the war which combined with the history wall, make a visit to PVB San Fernando Pampanga branch almost like a trip to the museum. The history wall also has a panel with a display monitor that continuously screens WW2 documentaries and photos.
PVB San Fernando Pampanga, located at Unit 2-3, The Peninsula Plaza MacArthur Highway Dolores San Fernando City, Pampanga also sports a new façade with a large “V” that is not only a nod to the bank’s stockholders – the over 300,000 Filipino World War II veterans – but also a symbol of the aggressive outlook that the bank has of the city. Thisaggressiveness is easily dispelled once inside the branch as the interiors convey a sense of comfort and homeliness.
Officials of Veterans Federation of the Philippines, the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, surviving World War II veterans of Pampanga also attended the event.
