I am interested in finding out any info on the service of my late father-in-law Gabino M. Sopena, who served as a Sgt. in the Philippine Scouts. His home of record was Iloilo City, and he had previously served in the Regular US Army in 1918 with a Coastal Artillery unit. He returned to active duty with a unit of the Scouts in 1941 and was posted to Guimaras Island near Iloilo. According to my wife, his unit was later sent north to participate in the defense of Bataan but we have no accurate info on that. Any info on Gabino or the Philippine Scouts units from the Iloilo/Visayans area would be greatly appreciated!
