Jose V Dizon - 12th Quartermaster
Feb 27th, 2009, 7:07pm
 
Seeking for info regarding my father, Jose V Dizon, who worked with 12th Quartermaster as a guy who fill-up military vehicles during the war in Tarlac, Philippines. My mother told me that his CO is a certain Col Lawrence (not sure). My father became a POW, incarcerated in Mariveles, Bataan and eventually escaped, finding their way thru the different towns of Bataan and Pampanga, till they got home in Mabalacat, Pampanga in 1942.
He joined the outfit in Dec 1941 in Tarlac together with Rafael Tuazon.
My mother, Amalia, who is a guerilla courier during the war, would tell her exploits, where Japanese Kamikaze pilots attend their ceremonial rites prior to their mission. Their temple being located in Mabalacat, Pampanga, in my hometown, make a single file and parked their boots in the order they enter the shrine and exit the same order so that they can just slip their feet and run to accomplish their mission.
My mother and others would sneak and dis-arrange their boots, delaying their mission so bad that they miss their moving targets.
You can contact me at "tikboydiz@yahoo.com"

Tikboy,

Did some searching with your names and here is what I got. The CO was Col Charles S. Lawrence, Quartermaster and his assigned unit was Luzon, so we got him.  Next I got 2 Jose Dizons.  a Jose G. and a Jose V.  Yours is a Jose V, but probably not this Jose V, as he is from Hawaii and has an enlistment date of 2 May 1942.  I have his Veteran's Gravesite Record and he has a birth date of 26 Nov 1904.

Now, Jose G. enlisted 24 Jul 1941, is in the Finance Dept, and is in the Philippines.

Rafael Tuazon is civilian, I only have a death record with a name nothing else.

I got several Passenger Lists for sailings on ships. 1921, 1955, 1926, 1952, and several more.

Without a birth date it is hard to eliminate any.

Regards,

Tom McGeeney

This is wonderful. My father's birth date is Aug 10, 1921. Born in Mabalacat, Pampanga, Phil. I believe he was a civilian too, like Rafael Tuazon.
My mother will be surprised to learn about this new data.
Is there a difference if he joined the outfit as a civilian or as an enlisted man in terms of service during the war?

I was kind taken aback by your reply. My father, Jose V Dizon, did work at the Accounting and Finance Office in Clark Air Base from 1948 thru 1964. He is now deceased, since Mar 1970.
I was with Citibank at Clark AB from 1964 thru 1977 and presently residing in Chino Hills, CA 91709 since 1988.
Your website is so wonderful, filling the blanks of lives lost during the war. If I can contribute in some way to your efforts, pls let me know.
I'm in the Philippines right now and will be returning to California on Mar 5. If there's a phone I can contact you, will be appreciated.
Mine is 909-606-5228. [smiley=thumbsup.gif] [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

Tikboy,

Got your messages and will see if birth dates help out.  We can eliminate the Jose with a Birthdate of 1904.

My phone number is (619) 207-4823, and I live in Chula Vista, CA.


Regards,

Tom
