8 March 2015 SLAPSHOT - Hi. My dad was a sailor on Guam in WW2 and early on in the war was in charge of the aft ventilation rebuild on the USS West Virginia in Bremerton, WA. He was a sheet metal worker by trade. My Father in law was a sailor on the destroyer USS Drayton and was injured by a kamakaze. My area of interest is all of WW2 and I read extensively on the subject.

19 JUNE - New Member "dugout" writes as follows: "I am a Vietnam veteran and I am in the process of writing a memoir of my time in the Air Force. While in the Vietnam arena I went to the Philippines for R&R (Rest & Recuperation) and while there I visited the island of Corregidor. I had taken plenty of pictures of the island, however, those photos were lost over time. Recently, I went on line to view many of the sights I had seen in Corregidor and I saw that you had posted several photos on your website. I am obligated, by the book publisher, to keep the book family friendly, which is my desire as well. With your permission I would like to use several photos (none with individuals) in my memoir unencumbered. Of course I would identify the source of the photos in my memoirs as being provided by Heritage Bn. The photos today don't show the ruggedness of the Island when I was there in 1968. However your “Then and Now” (the Then) come close to what I saw when I visited the island. Myself, two other military guys and a Filipino native got there via a 12 HP, dugout canoe. They still had unexploded artillery shells in some of the caves."
Dear "Dugout," Though the Heritage Bn and the Corregidor Historic Society websites might be said to be mine, that does not mean that I have the unlimited legal right to give permissions for every image they contain. (It would help to know which images you are seeking to use, even if you were to post thumbnails here.) My personal approach is that I am quite pleased to see images being used, and I give permissions when asked and when it is within my power to give it (subject to normal attribution conditions.) But I am not the copyright owner of everything, and I can't give what I don't own, only for those of my own images. So I can't give you carte blanche permission for any images owned by others, though in some cases you can find the copyright owners via this forum and contact those who post here regularly. I wish you all the best with your memoir, and welcome to the group. Registrar & EXO.

"styxmaster69" - Gary B from Manila, about whom nothing is known.
"ezrarolader" joins from Lilburn, Georgia. Gail Dempsey is the daughter of Ezra T. Rolader, of 2d Platoon, "E" Co., who jumped at Nadzab. She's researching his WWII history, but kept finding dead ends due to the 1973 St. Louis Archive fire. Prior to finding our mention of him on Corregidor.com website (in which he was listed as jumping at Nadzab), no one had been able to find proof of his paratroopers experience.

JackJensen: I came across my father's name - Capt. Paul Jensen - who was with the CIC, on the forum. I'm hoping to find more, though it appears that his area - Sicily, North Africa - was not the focus of the board. So, I'm not sure how much I can contribute.
