The PSHS was featured in the 2017 Rose Parade. A press release from PSHS follows:
Philippine Scouts 26th Cavalry Ceremonial Mounted Unit to be in the Tournament of Roses 2017 Rose Parade
Los Angeles, CA Dec. 30, 2016: The Los Angeles based Lt. Alexander Nininger Chapter of the Philippine Scouts Heritage Society, which honors the legacy of the US Army’s Philippine Scouts will be one of ninety four entries in the 2017 Rose Parade to be held on January 2, 2017.
This will be the first time that the historical Filipino and American US Army Unit, the Philippine Scouts, will be featured and this unique World War II Unit will be represented in the parade by the living history group named the 26th Cavalry Ceremonial Mounted Unit (26th Cavalry CMU) comprised of Nininger Chapter members made up of Descendants of Philippine Scouts, Businessmen, Educators, retired Professionals, Law Enforcement and California State Military personnel living in California. The historical Philippine Scouts were composed of Filipino enlisted men commanded by American Officers. General Douglas MacArthur was their Supreme Commander and they were often called “MacArthur’s Soldiers”.
With the theme of the upcoming Tournament of Roses being “Echoes of Success”, the 26th Cavalry (PS) Ceremonial Mounted Unit and its affiliate - the Lt. Alexander Nininger Living History Company (Lt. Alexander Nininger LHC), fit right into this year’s theme by representing Military Units of America’s Greatest Generation and the success they had in defeating the problems and tribulations of their time. The story of the Philippine Scouts reverberates and echoes their success through slogans coined by men who experienced those times, “I Shall Return”, “Strong to Endure”, “Anywhere, Anytime” and “Our Strength is in Loyalty”.
The group also honors the gallant United States Army Forces of the Far East (USAFFE) who affected and delayed Japanese Imperial Army plans on conquering the Pacific Far East and Australia in World War II.
With Southern California having the largest concentration of Filipino Americans in the United States and having an opportunity to tell the whole world about the valiant Filipino Soldiers and Philippine Scouts, the 26th Cavalry CMU and the Lt. Alexander Nininger LHC are greatly honored to participate in the 2017 Tournament of Roses Parade.
The 26th Cavalry CMU is Entry # 78. The Rose Parade will start at 8:00 am (West Coast Time) and will be shown on all major TV Networks.

”The Philippine Scout Heritage Society was formed to preserve their distinguished history. Unless the sons, daughters, grandchildren, friends and associates take a positive and active role as members of the Philippine Scouts Heritage Society, the heroic legacy of these elite Filipinos will die. As an old soldier waiting for final roll call, I urge you to remember this.”
