Looking to connect and share stories regarding my father.
He escaped the Bataan Death March with 5 others, only three made it through the tall corn filed at the bend in the road, which he knew was there because of his many times visiting Bataan.

He then went on to performing undercover work taking messages from town to town supporting the resistance.

The messages were rolled up tight and hidden in the stem of his pipe.


Thanks in advance

Hello:-) I am helping the family of Hal Snook, Jr research their grandfather's history in WWII. His discharge papers say "Philippine Scouts." He told them NOTHING about his WWII service. They do know he also fought in the New Guinea campaign, and in the liberation campaign in Mindanao in 1945. As far as I can figure out, he "must" have been in the 34th Infantry Regiment, which had been split off from the 8th division after Pearl Harbor and was attached to 12th Inf Div for the Philippine campaign. Apparently, Snook was trained in chemistry, explosives, communications, cryptoanalysis, and other "commando" skills. He seems to have been familiar with the "Eskaya" dialect of Cebuano, and may have been liaison to them in 1945-46. But he never told his family ANYTHING. They do have one photo of him with a crew of a lumbermill, probably on Mindanao. Can anyone explain why his discharge papers say "Philippine Scouts?" When he reupped for the Korean War, he went into the Air Force as an officer and worked in Japan on radar, but I don't know if he worked radar in WWII. But he kept his WWII activities a secret, even from his family. Thanks very much for any info or advice! I have attached a photo of him in his AF uniform.

I am trying to find information on my grandfather, Herman C. Kluge. He was the superintendent of a sawmill until the Japanese invasion of the Philippines. He then became Captain of the 121st Infantry Regiment in the American-Filipino Army. He and my grandmother, Anna Dettbarn Kluge, live with the guerillas in the mountains of North Luzon. My grandfather led the group tormenting the Japanese troops, which finally led to a price of 5,000 pesos for his capture. He surrendered July 4th, 1943 in order to save a village from mass execution. He was taken to a prison camp and later an underground dungeon, referred to as "The Icebox". After months of torture, he was executed November 1, 1943 near Manila. His remains have never been recovered.

Any information about him is appreciated. My grandmother escaped from the Philippines and was never able find word regarding his remains, either.
