Summary Remember the Boys poignantly captures the inspiring, true story of a chaplain and his war buddies. Born in Hawaii, Domingo Los Banos was a U.S. WWII soldier who went to war in the Philippines as a teenager with some 50 other Hawaii teenagers of Filipino ancestry. A son of a Filipino immigrant, Domingo, now in his 80s, is among the last remaining of the 50 "Hawaii boys" from the U.S. Army's 2nd Filipino Infantry Regiment. Domingo tells their story with humor and poignancy as he traces their steps to boot camp and then off to join U.S. forces in the Philippines to comb the hills of Samar Island for Japanese stragglers. Their relationship continues after the war, and Domingo remains in their lives as the chaplain to their veteran' club. As they age and fall sick, it is Domingo who ministers to them and their families and who eulogizes them when they pass on. To assure their war experience and contributions are not lost to their families or the public, he creates a commemorative pictorial book and is featured in a documentary film that went on to air on national PBS in prime time. Remember the Boys pays tribute to caring, the power of friendship, and the cherishing of memories
