My Great Grandfather
Feb 26th, 2010, 12:41am
 
I am trying trying to get as much information about my Great Grandfather, Juan Santillana and his unit. His details are as follows: SANTILLANA, JUAN  314822  ARMY,  SGT,  808th Military Police Company. He is among the Rolls of he Missing in the American Cemetery, Manila, Philippines. His date of death is 06/26/1942. He was at Ft. Stotsenberg, Pampanga, Philippines, when WW II broke out.

His son was also, for a time, a member of the Philippine Scouts. His name was Dionisio Santillana (1900-1968). So was his son-in-law, Andres Cabrido, (Captain, US Army, retired) who died in 1951.

I would appreciate it if somepone can hlep me out with information about my forebears.

You should try and fill out this form http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/military-personnel/standard-form-180.html
Since you're related, you can get all personal files and records on your great grandfather incl. medical reports, which can be hard to get without being related to the soldier or having permission of the family. It can take up to a few months to get your wanted papers, depending on how much they can dig up and it's 100% free of charge!
