Philippines WW2

Postby rowe_s » Fri Aug 16, 2013 10:09 pm

I was just watching a program that had info about Ferdinand Marcos, he was a dictator in the Philippines. My dad was a Paratrooper and fought in the Philippines. When Marcos was ousted and they had his picture on the news my Dad looked at me and said Hell! I shook that man?s hand in the Philippines, he was just a governor of ? Province then.

Just thought I would share that moment.

By the way Dad said when they were in the jungle he prefered the M1 Carbine, when he knew they were going to bushwhack some Japs he always took the M1 Garand with him.
