At the suggestion of Mr Kolakowski, I requested this document from the MacArthur archives. I have not seen it anywhere else on the net, so here you guys go. Hopefully this is not a repost. I asked for permission to post online and was granted, so long as I credited the source. So, thank you again James Zobel, and the MacArthur Archives.
A fascinating account to say the least....quite accurate in his locations. The Babuyan river would be more accurately described as a creek and San Jose seems to be a small refinery of some sort these days. The Japanese would seem to have had them pretty much clocked in during their retreat, particularly during the account of the artillery hit while going down trail 44. I dont know "trail 44"; anyone have further info on this?
EXO: There are a disturbing number of applicants for membership who are not reading the rules. As a result, members who have not made a relevant post within 3 months will be deleted, on the grounds they are "bots".

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.
