I read with interest the posting here from guerrilladaughter but see no other activity. I tried to search her name but this New Member Intro post is the only thing that came up.
Has there been any other contact from her in other threads that do not come up in the search? I would be very interested in what she has accumulated so far.
"Beirutvet, there has been no further contact with guerrilladaughter to date. All too often we have new members appear momentarily, and never hear from them again. Over the years I have deleted more than a hundred of them. It's my policy not to disclose a member's private email address, as life is complicated enough without getting involved in privacy issues. It's a long shot but if you leave a presonal message and she turns up again, it will be up to her to contact you. Best wishes, EXO"

Welcome to jaypermela, who writes: Mabuhay! I'm Jayper Merla and I'm from Mabatang, Abucay, Bataan. I just want to participate in the forums that discuss Bataan's heritage especially WWII related topics. Salamat and have a good day!
Welcome to slryan whose IP hails us from Singapore. He writes: Hi. I visited The Rock four years ago. I managed to do a "run through" since I only had a day. I saw the main gun positions, but had time for little else. I would like to come back to The Rock again and stay in one of your accommodations. This would allow me time to adequately explore. I would also like to join any members who are venturing out to Fort Hughes or Fort Drum. I imagine that access is quite restricted, and confined to groups that arrange beforehand. Thanks so much!

Welcome Howard of Dana Pt., California who writes: "I explored Corregidor many times when living in the Philippines in the the 1970s and 1990s. Since then I continue to study the island and its history. Also a member of CDSG. Have just joined this group and donated my membership fee. I want to get the digital 1936 maps and have been unsuccessful with how to download. Please advise. Thank you, Howard"
EXO Replies: Howard, I see there was a donation by Cheryl Taylor on 6 September, and I sent three maps to "her" and a short thank-you note to the address that same day. I thought PayPal would be forwarding it along. As they haven't, I have just forwarded it again directly to your members address as notified today. I hope it works and my apologies for the difficulties. If it doesn't arrive, or you have an issue opening them, be in contact again. Thank you for your donation - running the sites isn't all peaches and cream.

Welcome to mgalibroatlapis who writes: "I am an Architecture student from University of the East- Caloocan and currently doing his thesis research. I need to research on Caballo Island in Corregidor. Hoping you could help me. Thank you."
EXO Replies: From the information coming to us recently, it's harder to get on Caballo Island than it ever was. Using it as the quarantine station for Ebola hasn't helped any, either. Many of us have all but given up on getting there. You will find a number of posts on the forum if you use it as your search term, as well as Fort Hughes, and the various batteries - Gillespie, Woodruff, Craighill, William, Leach, Fuger, Idaho and Battery Hooker. (There's no telling what will show up if you search Corregidor Hooker.) Battery Boy (Tony Feredo) has been on the island more often than any of us, and taken more photos, so add his name to your search criteria. I've been there twice, though haven't written much about it, leaving the heavy lifting to Tony. There's also an article by Charles Bogart which is very useful.

30 November 2016: Welcome to Kevin Lamkin who writes us: "Hello, My grandfather served in the 24th infantry division in World War 2. I found some info on one of the forum pages referring to what I believe may be him. I was hoping to communicate with the author of the post to confirm my suspicion and to get more information as to where he got the info. I never got to meet my grandfather, so this is my way of learning his experiences and honoring his legacy. I believe the administrator "EXO" posted the article I found. If nothing else I would love to get some information from them. Thank you for the consideration and anything that this site may contribute to my knowledge of my grandfather."

Hello! I am a dependent spouse of a retired US Navy who used to be stationed in Naval Link Station in Mount Sta. Rita. At first, I was just browsing stuff about the former Naval Base Subic Bay which I frequently visited before. I ended up in this website which is so informative and the photos are awesome, so I decided to try to join hoping that maybe I can view more. My retired USN husband is originally from Colorado. Now, we are residents of Fort Worth TX - with last duty station was in Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base (or NAS Fort Worth JRB) Husband retired in September of 2004. That's all. Thank you very much. - Sincerely, Perla D. Matthews of Fort Worth TX

Welcome ltcpowellret to the Board who has written us as follows:
"Hello. My name is Gregg Powell. I would like to become a member of Corregidor.proboards.com. Before I retired from the Army in 2010, I was fortunate enough to have worked in the Philippines on and off for 4 years. My wife is a Filipino, and I go back every year. I'll go back this year in April, and one of the things that I plan to do is document the condition of each of the Bata'an KM markers. Looks like this was already done at least once back in 2007 - also the year that I drove along the route from Bata'an Mariveles to Camp O'Donnel in Tarlac. Would be happy to share the pictures with this forum. Regards. LTC Gregg Powell, US Army (Ret.)"
EXO: Welcome! While it's not featured via a thread on this board, one of our members, Bob Hudson, has been documenting the Bataan markers comprehensively, and posting sample images on one of his Facebook pages. Bob has been travelling the length, breadth and depths of Bataan restoring the markers, for which he deserves either a leather medal or to be committed, I can never decide which. You fellows clearly need to get together on this. Bob lives in a deep underground in a secret tunnel built under stately Hudson Manor in Limay, from where he strikes terrific terror into the hearts of negligent road workers across Bataan and Tarlac.
If you are going to be on Corregidor 6 May, look for us.

Welcome to Ron Rissler, who writes us: "I am authoring a book re: the direct descendants of Lt. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. His great grandson was Lt. Thomas J. J. Christian, Jr., attached to the 28th Bomber Squadron, Clark Field. I am seeking permission to use 4 of the photographs in the Aircraft in the Philippines heading, including "B-18 at Clark," "P-40Bs of the 3rd Pursuit at Clark," B-18 in a revetment at Clark," and "Another B-10 at Nicholos." If this is possible, plese let me know how I should cite the images in the book."
EXO to BATTERYBOY - Many of these are via you, aren't they? You might be the best person to field this inquiry, Tony.

delahyde: Hello Karl: I do not know what you mean. Bing Higgins sent me his original slides which I scanned, placed some on Panoramio, then returned AUS to US. Many people use my photos - not always with acknowledgement.
Karl Welteke: Delahyde, sorry, my comment was directed to EXO re his entry about the bombing in Manila 1941.

firstname.lastname@example.org: Dear Karl Welteke: When we found the location, it was a stinking garbage dump. It was either that more accurate location or the nearby and more dignified looking former horse cadaver incineration facility. Fidelity to history won the day.
