chadhill: ArmyAirCorp: Yes, Rutledge mentions meeting George Thomas from TN at Las Pinas Airfield 10/11/43. At end of book mentions he is dead (no details). There is no book index for me to check so your great uncle may be mentioned even more often. Feb 4, 2019 9:19:50 GMT 8

Marine Niece: My uncle, James P. Shockman USMC was a .50 caliber machine gunner, I believe on Caballo. Is there a roster anywhere of a small detachment of Marines who came in January of 1942 to Caballo as machine gunners. Any photos? Mar 6, 2019 5:19:13 GMT 8
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
