Impressive uniforms & reenactors! May I know who these reenactors are and how to get in touch with them? We may be having an event relating to Sixto Lopez anniversary and may require some ceremonies/program related to the Phil-Am War. Thanks in advance!
A son of a Phil Scout, I was born at Fort William McKinley just before the outbreak of WWII and spent my youthful years in and around the the post. I can recall going to the polo club once with my father, I think the year was 1948, the same year that we left the Philippines. I been back to the islands several times, to include being stationed at Marine Bks, Subic Bay. I've visited the old "Fort Mac" on several occasion and thought about stopping at the polo club, but was informed that the club is exclusive - only members may enter. I plan to visit the Philippines again in the immediate future and would like to know how, if there is any way at all, that I can be admitted to see what have become of it.

Welcome to the forum and I hope you will find out more about the Philippine Scouts here. And being born at Fort Mckinley is a unique part of your history.
There will be a 25th Silver Anniversary reunion of Philippine scouts in Long Beach, CA on May 8 & 9 2009. If you can make it to the reunion you might be able to meet vets and fellow members there who can help you in getting a chance to visit the Manila Polo club.
