I'd like to share a picture of Colonel Theodore M. Chase, CO, 60th Coast Artillery Regiment, receiving the Legion of Merit for his actions on Corregidor 1941-42 on January 13, 1947. Col. Chase retired in 1947.

scvet: I have been looking for info on WHEN the soldiers wives and children were evacuated from Ft. Mills. They apparently left sometime before December 7th, 1941. Has anyone seen any mention of when?

scvet: I came across a great posting on the internet: www.fsteiger.com/gsteipow.html.Captain George Steiger, CA, was assigned to Ft. Mills in 1941, had a battery of 12" mortars, was a POW and made it home! His pre-war diary entries are a fabulous look at that

scvet: long ago world. Very detailed diary entries while a POW are sobering. Well worth a look!

EXO: SCVET - the Steiger article is of such critical importance to what happened on the night of the sinking of the SS CORREGIDOR, we have backed it up.
