Good Afternoon to all members here! Right now, I'm working at Philippine Veterans Bank here in our province, Pangasinan. Due to the reason that I'm a grandson of a WW II veterans, I am also taking great pride to introduced and add in the List of Surviving Philippine Scouts of Philippine Scouts Heritage Society our family friend, clients and pensioner of our bank...Sgt. Marcelino Perez Ventura, A truly Genuine Phillippine Scouts Cavalry Man(AUS), A defender of Bataan, POW/Survivor of Death March and a Purple Heart decorated Scouts.

This is the information I saw and read in his discharge papers today dated 08.21.09 in his house.

Component              :   ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES
Arm of Service         :   CAVALRY
Date of Enlistment    :   SEPTEMBER 21, 1931
Rank                       :   PRIVATE
Army Serial No         :    6738357
Unit                         :   TROOPS A, 26TH CAVALRY
Date of Discharge/    :   JUNE 30, 1946  
   Separation
Rank(after discharge)  :    SERGEANT

Our lolo(we called it grandfather) is already 96 years old. He was born in 1913, but it seems that he's ready to achieve the feat 100 years old if he's always stay fit. He told me the story of his military career from riding his 1st horse as a cavalryman, heroic stand for depending bataan and his suffering as a pow in the death march. As I ended my conversation to "lolo" I've made a promised that I will post in this message board today all there's to know about him, especially his military service records.

Hoping that it gives an info. in this site that there are some or many more philippine scouts that still ALIVE and KICKING, like our "lolo" in  our province pangasinan and the whole country.

God Bless our WW II Veterans!!!

I noticed that there is no listing of 43rd Infantry PS. I believe, through this site, I have determined that there was one  (43rd) in WWI but that it was disbanded after the war. Then reinstated for WWII and derived from the 45th. I want to know if these PS troops fought alongside their American counterparts (I hope I'm saying this right). My Grandfather James T. Noland was H Co 103 Infantry 43rd Division and he has a Philippine Peso with many signatures on it. I feel that they may be some names Philippine Scouts. I am tracking his unit through the war and have really enjoyed all the information and insight this site has provided. I am proud that my Grandfather fought for and with the Philippine Scouts. Unfortunately any stories are limited and second hand. He and my grandmother saved EVERY letter they wrote to eachother but they were detroyed in a basement flood.  He passed away shortly after his 85th birthday alsmost two years ago.

If I try to decipher names from this Pilippine Peso and post them do you think I might have any luck, or is it just too random?  I cant get access to the Nation Archives because I am not a family member of a PS. I am not sure where to start.
Thank you for any assistance anyone can provide.

If you will check the first message in this string, which lists surviving Scouts by unit, you will find the following listing:

43rd Infantry (PS)--1
Gaspar C. Dowling (later 44th Inf. (PS)—New Scouts

It's possible that, if you can decipher the names written on the peso note, some visitors to this site might recognize at least some of them.
