Sgt. Felipe Ubaldo was in Battery A, 23rd Field Artillery Battalion P.S. He died at Camp O'Donnell on 4 September 1942. The 23rd Field Artillery (PS) was a small unit (regiment less one battalion). Battery A of the First Battalion survived until late January, 1942 when it was destroyed to prevent it from falling into Japanese hands. It had been used effectively to slow Japanese advances beginning 23 December 1941. Batteries B and C had been destroyed by Japanese counter battery fire in early January 1942. Surviving 23d Field Artillery Battalion (PS) personnel were then attached to the 91st Field Artillery of the Philippine Army.

Prior to WWII, he and his family were stationed at Fort Stotensburg for over 18 years. There Sgt. Ubaldo was an active sportsman, competing on bowling, equestrian and baseball teams. From 8 Dec 1941 to 25 Dec 1941 he was at Fort Stotsenburg under Capt. Coverdale. From that date until 10 April 1942 he was on the Bataan Peninsula with his unit. He first enlisted on 2 May 1923 at Dagupan, Pangasinan and was initially assigned to the 24th Field Artillery.
