I am the grandson of Private first class Emiliano G Paredes. I was wondering if anyone has any info/stories about him. I was able to find some military records about him but not really detailed. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks
Chris Paredes

One of the men who was buried along the south wall of the courtyard of the Saint Dominic Parish Church in Abucay (where Alexander Nininger was buried) was never identified, although he was found wearing an insignia with the motto "Verus Et Fidelis Semper", the motto of the 91st CA (PS).  As far as I can tell, the only 91st CA unit that served on Bataan was Battery C of the 2nd Battalion.

To the best of my knowledge, all of the men buried along this wall were KIA in January 1942. This man was thought to be an American. Does anyone have a list of casualty names from this time period for Battery C or any other 91st unit?

Hello to all,

I've been in contact with Mr. Patterson and am continuing to research this.

One of the men buried on the south side of the south wall of the church courtyard was an American that was never identified. His remains were found with an insignia bearing the inscription "Verus Et Fidelis Semper" which was the motto of the 91st CA (PS). As far as I can tell, the only unit from the 91st that served on Bataan was Battery C of the 2nd Battalion.  

To the best of my knowledge, all of the soldiers buried along this wall were KIA during January 1942.  Does anyone have information about casualties from Battery C or any other 91st CA unit during this period of time?

Looking for any information on my wife's Grandfather, Pablo L. De Guzman. She was told he was a Phil Scout during the siege of Bataan & was taken prisoner & participated in the Bataan Death March. They believe he may have been a Sgt. He did receive a U.S. Govt pension until his death. I have been searching this site to no avail. If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it! We recently visited Corregidor & Bataan here in the Philippines & I would love to teach my children about their Great Grandfather in the Philippines just as I did their GGF in America. I also think he deserves a military headstone. Thank you in advance! Richard Felkey - richfelkey87@yahoo.com

That's great information!  Hopefully some knowledgeable folks will respond and share more information about the 45th Infantry!  There's a recent multi-part series on the regiment's action on the Abucay Line in January 1942 at the Bataan Campaign web log on wordpress.com.

Corporal Pedro Oxonian, 45th Infantry Reg. Company "H".  KIA Feb 11, 1942.
 Private Luis Narag Cruz, 45th Infantry Reg. Date of Death Sept 27, 1942.  And his twin brother Private Marcelo Narag Cruz, 45th Infantry Reg., date of death July 7, 1942.
 Four relatives.  Only my grandfather survived.  If anyone has any info regarding the 45th infantry regiment.  History, rosters, placement/timeline of battles, Company pics I would really like to hear from you.

  My grandfather, Corporal Mariano S. Marfa joined the 45th Infantry Regiment (PS) in 1932 starting with Company "I".  
  In 1938 Mariano was transferred to Service Co., 45th Infantry Regiment (PS).  At this time he completed two certifications at the Quartermaster Motor Transport School, Port Area, Manila for Preventative Maintenance and Engine overhaul.
 Re-enlisted Feb 16th, 1941 to continue with the Service Co., 45th Infantry Regiment (PS).
 Question:  What was my grandfathers role in the Service Co. during the Battle of Bataan?

 I am new to the history of WWII.  Currently reading as much as can in researching where the 45th Infantry Reg was during the entire battle until the surrender April 9, 1942.  Mariano qualified (ER) expert rifleman.  Questions linger for me.  Was the role to supply the 45th with supplies?  How could he supply them if everyone is fighting and stand their ground in Bataan?
I would appreciate assistance regarding my personal journey to understand what and where my Lolo was doing at the time since I can no longer ask him personally.
