A major problem with so many events in the Phil. is that so many events are not flagged-up in advance!! I only learnt of it a few days before but being just 4 miles from the event in Clark is was not too big a problem. So Friends, any overseas Pinoys thinking of visiting The Phil. this year, remember the following dates. !2 June, 19 JUNE! (150th Anniversary of Lizal Event in Manila!) !896-1910 Re-enactors needed to support BNK Soc!!! and 19 December, same at the Premier of the Emilio Aquinaldo film "El Presedente" at the Metro Manila Film Festival. It would be a great show if you chaps from Spain could make either event! salute! David

PS! I had a wonderful time at the Jamboree, and look forward to next years event! As it was the First Jamboree, it was a very large turnout, and Ft. Stotsenburg makes a perfect location. The Banquet was superb and very tasty! Congrats to all those who worked so hard to arrange it. A bit more Publicity next year, and that means in Angeles city also OK.--- David
Hi Guys. Thought I'd introduce myself after following this site for more than 2 years now. My name is Jay Mallari and a native of Angeles City. I'm a nurse and have lived in the UK since 1999. My hobby is restoring military jeeps and Bong Casayuran is my mechanic/restorer. The jeep below is mine. I also enjoy learning military history particularly WW2. I'd like to extend my admiration and gratitude to all of you who keep our military heritage alive. I'm going home for a few weeks in August and hopefully meet some of you thru Bong.

Welcome to our Pinoy forum! Great that you follow the developments and events here. More exciting events will happen next year so set you dates for it.
You must know "indiosbravos" Lawrence another UK pinoy nurse a member of the PS heritage Society. You must join the Heritage society and join Lawrence in those reenactment events in the UK to help raise awareness of the Philippine's USAFFE major role in WWII. Ingat!

As Perry said this is the beginning lads..... Well done..
Restoring US jeep is big in Europe specially Belgium where spare parts cam be bought. One of the major supplier of the spare parts is from the Philippines. It's already been discussed here and loads of video input ( you tube ) from Philip.
I wish I could have been there. it is a good idea to restore these jeeps. I attended the event in Long Beach and had a wonderful time. Col. Ed Ramsey and his wife were there. Gil Mislang, Frank Lopez and other scouts did a great job of organizing the event.
Thanks to Vic who did a lot of work as MC, speaker and PSHS secretary. We were treated to the screening of Donald Plata's Forgotten Soldiers. But he did not have any DVD copies to sell us. www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_QeCwcudbI
We also need a 1941 Jeep here at PSHS SoCal. in Phil Department / Division markings.
PS: A committee was formed at the meeting to explore having 2012 PSHS Reunion and meeting there in Ft. Stotsenberg.

Dear MVCCP Members,
We are trying to produce an epic war movie during WW2 in the Philippines regarding the lives and times of Capt Jesus Villamor and his pilots of the 6th Pursuit Squadron.The story “Days of Infamy” (Part 1 & 2)is about the bravery of Philippine Army Air Corps Airmen of the United States Armed Forces in the Far East (USAFFE) who fought against all odds during the invasion of the Japanese Empire in the Philippine Islands during WW II. That in spite of their antiquated aircraft almost obsolete during the start of the Pacific War flew and met a more superior Japanese Air Forces without hesitation to defend the country against her enemy. It is a story of valiant and courageous Filipinos and Americans making a last stand at Bataan and Corregidor hoping that reinforcement will come for it is only a matter of time this sentinel of freedom and democracy west of the Pacific will fall into the hands of the Japanese Empire.
Maybe with some arrangements with you and the members of the Military Vehicle Collectors Club of the Philippines (MVCCP), we can jointly produce this War movie paying our respect and tribute to our heroes and recognition to the world true Filipino heroism.
If you are interested, I/we will send you a copy of the screenplay for your perusal via email. Please send me your email address. You may also view the teaser we prepared with state of the art CGIs at:

Thank you for your reply. I wrote the screenplay because I am an Air force Historian myself.
We have very talented Filipino Computer Generated Imaging artists who made the teaser in Youtube. We have made arrangements for the production of the movie with Mr Dondon Monteverde of PostManila Productions (Son of Mother Lily of Regal Films) but unfortunately it is taking them so long to produce the movie. The attached photo 001 is Mr Peter Colias, Me and Mr Monteverde.
Mr Peter Colias who was the Production Arts Director for so many USA movies including Red Thin Line, Molarouge, The Matrixs etc. is willing to direct the film without any pay or with little compensation. We also have CGI Artists who are willing to do the Special Effects and CGIs which will be compensated once the movie have earned already (post production payment). The Philippine Air Force is also willing to assist the production with the access to various airfields and hangars, guns and ammos etc.
The initial cost of production on Part 1 is P5M for the uniforms, individual combat equipment, pyrotechnic, other props, mobility during shooting on sites, food and billeting of production personnel on site if overnight is required. The Phil Air Force will also provide other equipment available to them like airfields, hangars, howitzers, springfield rifles, aircraft and trucks.
On the actors, we will only get theatrical actors and/or family members from MVCCP and maybe the members themselves and your American friends. They have existing uniforms and jeeps!! hehehe...
Once we a finished Digital copy, we can enter it in International Film Festivals to get International buyers and distribution. We can also sell it to Local Philippine Film Distributors and Pay Per View TV and Internet Pay Movie.
Once we are successful on this, there will be a continuing story as part 2.
Unfortunately we are having difficulty in raising the funds (Only P5M). We an make an arrangement by breaking the P5M in to 1000 shares at P5,000 per share. The dividends will be paid to those who have invested in the project based on the total profit realized.
If you should be interested on this worthy project, I am more than willing to send you the screenplay for your perusal (Exclusive for your eyes only)
Please help us make this a reality so we can tell the stories of our Filipino heroes not only to our children but to the whole world. I believe this war epic movie project will and can generate between P150M to over P300M.
