Congradulations to our Filipino reenactors for doing this 1st reenactment event for the public in Philippine soil for telling their story and honoring the sacrifices of our greatest generation. They are our "Band of brothers".
The battle of Bataan was the last battle of WWI and the first ground battle of the US forces for WW II.
"Mabuhay ang Philippine Scouts, Philippine Army and Constabulary!"

What a stunning Video! If this is what we can do on our very first attempt, our 1st Re-enactment with all the limitations of small resources and time to construct the 'Battle-field' and only minutes in hand to rehearse the hand-to hand stuff; then what can we do next time!!?

A copy of my very own! There really is a Santa! I think it would be nice next time to select a more marshal sound tract in the background perhaps, and to label the names of the portrait photos of those who took part (Like real actors Ha Ha)? Of course if we have the numbers of members as I hope we get, then that may be too much work.

Phil. TV C24 last night made a request to viewers to send in exciting scripts and stories for consideration for TV Films. I would suggest Given the DVD we can present as a taster, one of us should should send a script telling the story of Lt. Edwin Ramsey who led the 26th Cav on The U.S Army's last charge in history (against the Jap. 65th Regt) that routed the enemy. Ramsey later took command of a sector of Guerrillas that fought on after the fall of Bataan up to the end of the war. It could if well received, lead on to a soap-drama series following the fortunes of a Filipino "Band of Warriors". Failing that the fateful battle at San Mateo 1898, between Gens. Lawton & Geronimo!
