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.

Mike Stewart: Brand new member learning the system. I'm the Grandson of 1st Lt. Karl Maris Stewart, captured on Corregidor, POW/KIA Dec 15, 1944 on the Oryoku Maru. I'm just starting to research the family history before it disappears. Dec 24, 2014 13:18:52 GMT 8
Jerry O'Connor; : I really enjoyed viewing these photos of Karl's as usual. What a very remote place to hike to. The volcano eruption really changed the landscape and rivers. I was stationed at Service Craft Harbor Tugs Subic Bay August 1972 to May 1974. I lived in Barretto Dec 30, 2014 0:26:14 GMT 8
