P.S. Reunion 5/18-19/07
Feb 20th, 2007, 1:52pm
The following is an edited down version of PSHS President John Patterson's letter to the membership.  The reunion will be held at the La Quinta Inn in Tacoma, WA.  Registration information will soon appear on our website.  


Dear Members and Guests,

We look forward with anticipation to our annual reunion and business meeting in Tacoma on May 18-19 and are grateful to Joe Calugas and his team for hosting this gathering.  The Society’s last reunion was a resounding success, featuring Joe’s late father, Jose Calugas, Sr., one of three Scouts who received the Medal of Honor in World War II.

This year, Joe has lined up an outstanding speaker in Brig. Gen. Oscar Hillman (Ret.) and organized panels around the defense of Bataan and Corregidor, as well as the experience of military nurses during the fighting.  There will also be a panel highlighting the New Scouts, a group that we need to know more about.

While our time in Tacoma will involve these historical and educational activities, we also will be conducting Society business such as the election of national officers, review of bylaws, etc.  More importantly, we will take time to renew friendships, share experiences and recognize the significance of the Philippine Scouts.

The Philippine Scouts Heritage Society has accomplished a great deal over the years.  Let’s continue to preserve the history, heritage and legacy of these extraordinary warriors.

‘See you in Tacoma!

John Alexander Patterson, President
Philippine Scouts Heritage Society
