norm grossman: The Fall of the Philippines 1941-42 has always interested me and now at 67 years old and retired I have the time to surf the internet and find great website like yours to get answers to my questions on this subject. Mar 11, 2019 7:30:56 GMT 8
norm grossman: How can I post or upload photos on my posts that are off my computer and don't have URL links? Thanks Mar 11, 2019 7:35:09 GMT 8
EXO: Norm Grossman - most of us arrange our own third-party image storage. Flickr, or Photobucket are two in the market. Mar 14, 2019 5:35:52 GMT 8

chadhill: Marine Niece,see: Note p.2 where it mentions cemetery at Flag Pole Hill. Then see map p.28 showing marines buried left side of island. North is at bottom map Apr 1, 2019 11:55:15 GMT 8

chadhill: Marine Niece: see page 89 in this file for an account of your uncle's death. May 20, 2019 13:16:09 GMT 8
Marine Niece: Chadhill: Thank you for the sources! They've become part the story I'm writing about James's Marine service and his death. Do you think it's at all possible for me to recover my uncle's body and bring it home? May 31, 2019 5:31:37 GMT 8
chadhill: Marine Niece: Very possible. Call USMC Service Casualty Office to register as family member at 800-847-1597. They will want a DNA sample. See FAQ at Be sure to request his Individual Deceased Personnel File. Jun 5, 2019 7:16:36 GMT 8
Marine niece: About 5PM 5/6/42, my uncle swam from the shelter of some Caballo cliff caves to help someone swimming from Corregidor. Returning, he was resting in the water by rocks when he was bombed and killed. Are there cliff caves east of the north dock near Fuger Jun 11, 2019 22:50:33 GMT 8
cbuehler: Marine Niece, Jun 13, 2019 0:33:51 GMT 8
cbuehler: Caballo Island is almost all cliffs etc. I have to say that a swim from Corregidor to there would be quite a feat even for an outstanding swimmer, given the distance, frequently rough water and sharks that were there. Jun 13, 2019 0:39:22 GMT 8
cbuehler: CB Jun 13, 2019 0:39:32 GMT 8
chadhill: Marine Niece: some research possibilities here: Jun 21, 2019 19:36:00 GMT 8
batteryboy: There were a number of natural caves along the steep and rocky shoreline of Caballo. Not that deep though. There is a slight slope from the shore line leading to Battery Fuger but I cant recall any natural caves when i circled the island. Jul 29, 2019 18:30:52 GMT 8
fortune40: Has anyone heard of government plan to build bridge between Bataan and Cavite passing by Corregidor? If its true going to the island in the future is easier to any tourists coming from Bataan or Cavite but the influx may change the landscape too..! Sept 17, 2019 20:40:04 GMT 8
Rmcnnlly: My Gr-Uncle Lt. Col. Cyril "Bud" Marron died on the Oryoku Maru. I recently heard there will be an attempt to recover the remains of the those who died on the ship. Does anyone know who to contact about this? Sept 18, 2019 3:26:06 GMT 8
SGantner: Hello, does anyone now where my grandfather Kurt Gantner is burried? I will come soon to Manila. I never had the opportunity to say him goodbye. Thank you for your help. Oct 1, 2019 3:13:07 GMT 8
