The above picture that is from the 1950's, whom my first cousin sent to me. This is a picture taken in the 1950's showing my Auntie Ecay; Cpt. Frederica M. Garcia who was the commander at V. Luna Medical Center; now the AFP Medical Center.
She was working at Fort McKinley prior to the War, went with the other nurses to Bataan/Corregidor. After the war she rose in rank from 2nd Lt. to Colonel, and was Posthumously promoted to Brigadier General, Nurse Corp; AFP.
So to honor her memory, I've been going on a tear trying to find out more about her. So if I may have seemed a bit hard on the questions I'm posting its because I don't have any other information, except for a few burial pictures of her casket in full military honor, and the stories that she was a general.
Fantastic! Priceless news article. Who kept it all these years?
You should do an impression of her
I grew up about half a mile from V.Luna hospital. I was confined there a couple of times when I was a kid (asthma). My grandfather was a veteran and I think family members could avail of medical care there muc cheaper than the regular hospitals.
