Vicente Jungco
Jul 27th, 2007, 7:31pm
 
Hello all! I'm currently researching an uncle who I believe may have been a Philippine Scout. I have some of his military records from the National Archives but am trying to confirm whether he was a POW. My uncle is Vicente Jungco, service dates August 23, 1919 thru January 26, 1952. I know he was assigned to Fort McKinley at one time.  He passed away October 30, 1979 and is buried in San Pablo City. His gravestone says he was a Corporal.  Can anyone confirm his POW status? Thank you!

Dear Mr. Jungco:
I recall my mother mentioning the name Jungco.  My father was a Philippine Scout in the 57th Infantry, C company.  I am also looking for information about Abraham Faller.  He was a private during WWII and was highly decorated.  In 1967 he was the most decorated soldier at FT. Jackson, S.C.  Anyone else who may have information about my father, please let me know.  I can be reached at ndelpilar@yahoo.com.  I reside in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  I am a historian, as well.

Hi Everyone,

I got pretty much what Sue put up, but with the similarities of Vicente and Vincente I also got an enlistment and death for Vincente.  These were the only two records listed.

Vincente Jungco, born 1901 enlisted on March 13, 1945 as a Frivate Fist Class in the Signal Corps.  And then Social Security Death Index lists date of death as October, 1979, birth October 12, 1901.  State listed was Hawaii.

Don't know if this is any help, or more of a hindrance.

Regards,

Tom McGeeney
