China-Burma-India Theater Recognition sign now

We are petitioning to have the long overlooked and forgotten theater of WWII, the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theater, acknowledged and addressed in a future series or special. The European and Pacific theaters have been featured in two superb series on HBO. We feel that the veterans who sacrificed for their country in the CBI Theater deserve the same recognition afforded to those who fought in the more well-publicized Theaters of WWII. We would like to honor these veterans with similar attention and focus. They deserve no less.

Officially established March 3, 1942, the CBI Theater is often referred to as The Forgotten Theater of World War II. Of the 12,300,000 Americans serving at the height of World War II, only about 250,000 were assigned to the CBI Theater.

There are hundreds of books documenting the exceptional service and sacrifice of these amazing men and women in conditions beyond extreme.

The CBI Theater was not a footnote in history or a series of "battles". It was a series of fronts that kept the Japanese forces from winning the war in the Pacific. There would not have been a victory without the forces in the CBI.

We ask that equal time be given to this Theater of Operations of WWII. We cannot nor should we allow these heroes to be forgotten or ignored.
