I just lost everything before this. Photo Image froze on me and I lost my opening comments. I am very upset at this moment.
I will post this now and a picture to save my thread.
I will put back that I want to thank Gil Mislang who continues to open his heart but most important his wallet. He feeds our group and Joe Lopez and his friend. I want to say again thank you Gil.
The following pictures are a few from image posting which takes awhile and just lost my last thread.
More pictures to follow from others I hope.
The few before flag raising
Flag raising in honor of 70th Fall of Bataan
FDR next to us being played by Mike. Body guards Ray Ortega, Rudy Cabigas new members Jeff and Monty Hom
Ted, Franz and Ray with new friend at flag raising.
Photo of Joe Lopez, Juan the "Apache" and I. Joe was asked by me to assist in the raising of the Flag knowing we would be short a few guys Saturday am. He is wearing original cavalry boot and pants I gave him. They were extras sitting in my garage. Could not think of them sitting collecting dust.
Hi Albert, I think Gil has one of the PS flags with him.
Thanks for posting the pictures Rudy, post more when you get the chance. The same thing has happened to me many times. So years ago I started composing long posts (especially the ones with many pictures) on a separate text editor and I just copy and paste everything once ready.
Thank you Mike for the kitchen set up. Thank you April for letting Mike join us and being our Miss USO. Thank you for the PSHS members who managed to come and inform the public about the Philippine Scouts. Welcome to our new friends from the other units who shared our dinner and shared their beverages.
Thank you Victor for getting me hooked up with Gil and the boys. Rudy, Ray, Ted, Joseph were all so great! I attended with my wife (current serving U.S. Naval officer) and my two young kids. it was a wonderful event, glad I could make it. The group was very supportive and gave me great comments on my impression...that of a runner, 4th Marines, Corregidor. All of my gear, uniform etc was 100% period original. I felt it was important to have some USMC support for the group. My wife shot some cool photos which I will post soon. Gil has also reached out to me with some upcoming events to attend as well. So I am looking forward that. More to come. We charge to the sound of the guns! Cheers, Monty
I want to thank you both for how you treated us at the reunion. You guys did a fantastic job. Most of all, having a horse waiting for me and riding the horse on the parade grounds was my highlight of the trip.
I will say more in Cabigas Heritage section when I get a chance, with photo's also.
A few more pics. Seems I really did not take that many and the boys were moving around like me. We should have staged a few more shots.
