No New Posts Guest Board

In order to join as a Forum Member (i.e., become a plebe), we require that our Guests make themselves known through a few threads on this board. Due to the number of spammers constantly attempting to attain membership, we're expecting that you prove your "humanity". Membership isn't required to start a thread on the Guest Board, so don't abuse the privilege. Spam and product links will be killed joyfully, without toleration. If your post is without merit, or off-topic, or even impolite, we'll kill it fast. Worthwhile posts will be moved where appropriate.

George McClellan: I took my family out there in the 1973-5 a couple of times. Tried to enter the tunnel but a damn cobra has taken possession and contested our further entry. I recall a gun mount not shown in the photos and a viewing tower, both probably long gone for scrap Nov 4, 2015 2:27:45 GMT 8

JohnSweeney-digmkt@comcast.net: This site is new to me. I was so moved to read about my father Sergeant Major Thomas Franklin Sweeney-Service #208378 killed May 6, 1942. I was six years old at time of his death. I want to visit the Water Tower site and would appreciate any travel info. Nov 12, 2015 22:01:44 GMT 8
chadhill: Hello John Sweeney. We are very glad you have visited this website. I have not been to Corregidor since 1987 so I cannot provide any current travel info, but maybe others can. Please feel free to post any information here that you would like to share. Chad Nov 17, 2015 22:45:21 GMT 8
chadhill: Hello again Mr. Sweeney. In 1986 I climbed to the top of the water tank where your father died. At that time the roof was intact but covered with debris including what seemed to be several pull-rings from grenades that would been thrown by your father. Nov 17, 2015 23:06:41 GMT 8
westernaus: Howdy Mr. John Sweeny, Nov 18, 2015 9:41:51 GMT 8

westernaus: Again Gooday, You would need to stay in the Philippines at least for 2 weeks . Check out Expedia web site for hotels and prices in manila to suit your budget. Nov 18, 2015 9:56:41 GMT 8
westernaus: Gooday Again,My wife and myself will be slumming at the hotel across the road from US Embassy Manila . Bayview Park Hotel at the start of March 2016 . Nov 18, 2015 10:00:24 GMT 8

chadhill: Mr. Sweeney.[br][br]We are honored to have you aboard the corregidor.proboards.com website. I tried to send you an email but it was kicked back by the server. We would appreciate hearing any information you would be willing to share about your famous father. CH Nov 23, 2015 13:57:32 GMT 8
