My father-in-law says he was a Philippine Scout. His name was Eustaquio Villador, later changed to Edmund Villador. He continued his service with the US Army until he retired around 1964. I met his family when he was a MSgt stationed at West Point and I was a Cadet studying there. I married his daughter immediately after graduation.

I do not see his name in the list of surviving PS. Is there any way I can confirm his service with the Philippine Scouts? I think his late brother Raymundo (Raymond) Villador was a PS also.

Can you tell us to what PS unit he belonged?  The Veteran's Administration may be able to supply information on his service.  Information on contacting the VA can be found on our PSHS website.  Editor

A 100 year old Bataan veteran from this news article may be a possible surviving scout, especially since he stayed with the US Army after the war.

My father SFC Ricardo R. Maravillas (USA, Ret.), of Fairfield, CA, has been a Lifetime Member since I took him to the 2003 PSHS Reunion in San Mateo, CA.  

He is, incidentally, a veteran of both the 14th Engineers Rgt. (Co. "C") at pre-war Fort Wm. McKinley; and after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the 12th Med. Bn. (Co. "C"). On Bataan, he was an Aid-Man in that particular Clearing Company, which supported the 57th Inf. Rgt. at Abucay Hacienda, and during the last battles before the Fil-American surrender on 9 April 1942.  

At eighty-six years of age, he is among the youngest of the surviving "Old Scouts."

Fourteen newly identified former Philippine Scouts have been listed in the first entry above under "unidentified units".  All are now living in the San Francisco area, but either have not been interviewed or cannot remember their Scout units accurately.  These units will be identified as more information is developed.  Editor

From the news paper article:
Born on Aug. 22, 1907, FSC Felixberto P. Racadag was the seventh of eight children of Bernardino Racadag and Praxedes Pancho. He had wanted to become a teacher but wishing to take his family out of poverty, he decided to join the the Philippine Scouts in 1926, which gave him P18 per month.
FSC Felixberto P Racadag  Born:       22 Aug 1907
Died: 7 JAN 2008, at the age of 101, in  Naga City, Phillippines.

I stumbled upon this. I didn't know famous Filipino movie actor Eddie Garcia was a Scout in Okinawa. I didn't see him in the list of surviving Scouts. -victor

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/eddie_garcia/biography.php

Eddie Garcia (born Eduardo Verchez Garci­a on 2 May 1921 in Sorsogon, Philippines) popularly known as Manoy is a Filipino movie and television actor. He is a former member of the Philippine Scouts in Okinawa during World War II. He made his first movie, Siete Infantes de Lara in 1949.

He is also known to play the part of Leandro Montemayor, the fictional Philippine President on the television drama series, "Kung Mawawala Ka" (When You're Gone), and gave him his first Best Actor in a Drama Series in the 2002 Star Awards.

He also played a part as Lolo Carlos (Grandfather Carlos) in the Filipino-American film, The Debut, and as Lolo Sinat (Grandfather Sinat) in the film, Deathrow.

He is the only person in the Philippines to be a Hall of Fame inductee of the FAMAS in three categories: Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Director.

He is the only performer in Philippine movie history to win three consecutive FAMAS Awards: Best Supporting Actor Awards for Taga sa Bato (1957), Condenado (1958) and Tanikalang Apoy (1959).

He is the most awarded and nominated person in the long history of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Awards. He garnered a total of 34 nominations (13 for Best Supporting Actor, 10 for Best Actor and 11 for Best Director). Out of these, he got 6 Best Supporting Actor wins, 5 Best Actor wins and 5 Best Director wins, 3 Hall of Fame Awards, 1 Lifetime Achievement Award and the Fernando Poe, Jr. Memorial Award. He was awarded his first FAMAS Award in 1957 and his last FAMAS, a Hall of Fame for Best Actor, in 2003.

The first actor to be inducted in the FAMAS Best Supporting Actor Hall of Fame of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences in 1974.

The veteran Janny Ruiz interviewed in this article is mentioned as a Philippine Scout, Death march survivor, became a US citizen after the war, served in the US Army and fought in Korea.

He doesn't seem to be on the list so I'm mentioning him here in case somebody knows him.

http://www.contracostatimes.com/localnews/ci_11926814

Excerpt:
One of the survivors is Ruiz, who often wears a blue cap with the inscription "Bataan Death March 1942 Survivor" when he isn't wearing a "1st Cavalry" cap.

He enlisted in the Philippine Scouts in February 1941 and soon found himself fighting for the United States when war broke out. Captured by the Japanese, he endured the Bataan March, and was released after six months in a camp, malnourished and sick with malaria. His first wife died during the war.

Soon after independence, Ruiz became an American citizen and joined the U.S. Army. He served in Japan and later fought in Korea, where he was wounded and received a Bronze Star for bravery. He then worked at the Oakland Army Base until his retirement.

Janny Ruiz has been added to the list.  If he was a Philippine Scout, as he appears to have been, he is not eligible for a $15,000 bonus, as Philippine Scouts who fought in WWII were already members of the Regular U.S. Army and generally eligible for the same benefits made available to American soldiers.  "New" (post-WWII) Scouts, Philippine Army soldiers and certified guerrillas who fought the Japanese are eligible.
