60th Anniversary Recapturing Corregidor
Dec 19th, 2006, 3:06am
 
On 2nd March 2005 the Philippine Government observed the 60th anniversary of the recapture of Corregidor. On that day, 60 years ago Gen MacArthur personally ordered the US flag raised on that 'Old Flagstaff' in an solemn ceremony. The Philippine and US representatives observed many 60th anniversaries in the Philippine in 2005.
I was there and present my pictures and comments in this link.

The above link was dead  but is now active again as of 11 Feb. 2011!

The 'corregidor.org' webmaster prepared an earlier report of that event and here is his link.
