Preserving the history, heritage, and legacy of the Philippine Scouts for present and future generations

Scout Information Exchange

The Scout Information Exchange is intended to improve communication within the Society and between our members and others interested in the historical heritage of the Philippine Scouts. It will function as an information exchange, reporting on new articles, books and films on the Scouts, aiding historical researchers and soliciting additional information on individual Scouts and Scout units.

Please post to our message board or contact us at if you have contributions or additions to the Exchange.

 

Finding information about Scouts

Our message board is now in full-swing, with many posts about individual scouts and their background. Please take a look, and post a reply on the message board if you can supply additional information on the military service of any of the listed personnel who served in or with the Philippine Scouts.

If you have a request for information you should also use the message board to post your question. You can also contact us at .

While the PSHS is pleased to assist where possible in obtaining information on former and deceased Philippine Scouts, our archives are not extensive. More complete information often can be acquired through the Department of Veterans Affairs. To obtain a request form, please call your County Veterans Service Office or the national VA at (800) 827-1000 and ask for VA Form 180 (Request Pertaining to Military Records). This form is also available on the VA website (www.va.gov).
