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

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
