I would recommend that you consult with attorneys who specialize in veterans' affairs.

Congress was considering enacting H.R.210 - Filipino Veterans Fairness Act of 2011, that would amend Title 38 to allow Filipino fighters who fought for the USA to receive VA benefits. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:H.R.210.IH:
