I must also regretfully be unable to attend. my wife arrives from London on the 18th with a host of wedding guests, and the Wedding is ---Yes correct; the 22nd! As many of them will be staying at our new home in Angeles, I swon't be free for the 27th either. I really wanted to assisting in drawing attention to the Battle of San Mateo as it's 111yrs this Dec 18th, since Gen. Lawton's death. More so as I like to portray Capt. A. Howard. As he might have said "Dash it All!" David

Sad to say, the event is cancelled. The dinner on Mar 22 is focused on the signing of MOA of several Gov't groups with the Phil. Army. The concern of the DOST, Dept. of Educ, DTI, etc... who will be present during the event & the signing of MOA with the Phil. Army is that they decided to sign the MOA after the election since after the election, there maybe changes of officers on the said organization.
The Phil. Army tried their best to push through on the event to the last minute, but the groups decided not to, so I they depply regret that the event will be postponed. Our group is still invited for this event, but the date is still indefinite.

The Philippine Army, Maj. Vic & Maj. Almagro are very appreciative that our group is very supportive on their cause & deeply regret for the inconvinience we experienced because of the changing of schedule, then the postponment on the said event.
