I've found no 23rd Infantry in either the U.S. or Philippine Army units fighting on Bataan.  There was a 23rd Field Artillery (PS) regiment.  

Information on contacting the Veterans Administration is available on our PSHS website.  Although some WWII records are incomplete due to a warehouse fire several decades ago, the VA might be able to assist you in your search.

Good luck with your search.

Sir was there  an M Company 3rd BN in the 23 Field Artillery regiment PS. Thanks for you reply. Maybe I misunderstood My Grandmother on the infantry part. He died at Batan and her US Dollar pention right after the war made me wonder if he was a Scout or not. Thanks a Million!
