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.

alalba: Hello.I'm looking for any information about where and how the US recruited Filipinos just after WWII, 1945-46 (Subic or Sangley).I'm writing a memoir for my Dad who was a guerrilla during WWII, joined the US Navy in Apr '46, and retired in 1971. Thanks Sept 23, 2020 11:30:51 GMT 8
SteveG: My father, Alex Georgakas, was in the 503rd and is listed on the 2nd BT HQ list of participants in the Corregidor action. His service records make no mention of that action, nor did he receive the Presidential Unit Citation awarded to his group. Thoughts? Nov 13, 2020 0:46:52 GMT 8
Eduardo P. Sayajon : Hello to all, my uncle Crescencio B. Sayajon served & was a member of the 26th Cavalry Regiment Philippine Scout during WW2 a letter of Appreciation was given but unfortunately it was destroyed. I would like to know where I could get a copy?? Nov 16, 2020 23:04:02 GMT 8

tmayer: Steve G, Did you ever talk to your Dad about his time in the service? Does his discharge list a Philippine Liberation Medal? Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal with any bronze stars or an arrowhead? Nov 19, 2020 8:26:25 GMT 8
Steve G: tmayer, my dad passed when I was just 9 years old, so he never really talked in depth to me about his service. My understanding is that he really never did go into detail with anyone about it, as far as I ever heard. Dec 8, 2020 23:29:05 GMT 8
