“9:10 am, Fort Mills, Corregidor Island, the guardian of Manila Harbor, ‘The Rock’: We are pulling into the North Dock. To our left is the famous Malinta Hill and the ‘tail.’ To our right is the ‘head’ with most of the batteries, including Battery Way. Right now, they are playing ‘The Stars and Stripes Forever.’ I am weeping. I can’t help it. I can barely write this.”
This is the story of a son tracing his father’s footsteps and discovering a true and inspirational story of courage, faith, and patriotism in the days of Bataan, Corregidor, and Japanese POW camps in WW II. With black-and-white photos.
