I'd like to remind everyone that today, sixty nine years ago, the battle for the Philippines began, with the air attack that would precede the eventual invasion.  My grandfather wrote in a memoir shortly after the war some of his thoughts and experiences at the time and this memoir can be found on the Combined Arms Research Library.  Here is a link to his memoir of that day: [urlhttp://www.cgsc.edu/carl/resources/archival/lilly/notebook19.asp][/url]
Included in this memoir are also some descriptives of the eventual battle for Bataan, and there are also transcriptions as well as scans of his diaries after his captivity.  
Often forgotten was how only hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the attack on the Philippines began, and how the brave Scouts held the enemy at bay for months after their scheduled invasion plan, giving the Pacific fleet and military time to engage them in ultimate victory.
Anywhere, Anytime!

Regards,
Raleigh

Sorry about that link, here it is done correctly:

and also, the main site where you can find the rest of the transcriptions and scans (not all has been completed):
