Have you heard of Antonio Taguba, Eleanor Concepcion Mariano, or Allan Pineda Lindo? They are all Filipino Americans-either half Filipino or all Filipino who have grown up in America. Antonio Taguba was a U.S. Army general who had the courage to write a report about his collegues who were mistreating Iraqi prisioners. Eleanor Concepcion Mariano was the White House physician for Presidents George H.W.Bush and Bill Clinton. Allan Pineda Lindo is a singer in the group The Black Eyed Peas. The Black Eyed Peas were the featured group of the 2011 Super Bowl halftime show. There are many other interesting biographies of notable Filipino-Americans in this book. This book is part of the Succesful Americans series. Isn't it great that America is made up of people from so many different countries of the world?
