Magka-batch nga tayo.  Yun nga yung unang officer na babae sa corps, batch natin yun.  Umattend din ako ng pa concert sa DMST kasi required tayo at para kumita yung UP Corps of Sponsors, project kasi nila yun.  

Naalala mo yung isang officer/Banggoy na si Sir Isaac Arribas?  Yung maputi? Noong anniversary yata ng corps, pumarada yun kasama ng ibang alumni.  Wala yata siyang ibang barong kaya ang suot niya, may square and compasses na nakaburda.  Tsaka ko lang nalaman later that semester na DeMolay at Mason din pala. . .

"In these hallowed surroundings where heroes sleep, may their ashes scatter with the wind and live in the hearts of those who were left behind. They died for freedom's right and in heaven's sight. Theirs was a noble cause."
-Written in a Filipino and American statue marker in Corregidor


April 9- Araw ng Kagitingan. We remember Bataan. On this day thousands of Filipino and American soldiers surrendered to the Japanese Imperial army; the largest surrender in Filipino and American military history (approx 75,000 troops).

Let us not forget their sacrifices and heroism they have done for our country.

Vanguards who fought in world war 2

www.upvanguard.org/home -

We herein mention some of the UP Vanguards who etched their names in our military history with valor. Many others did their part but have remained within the curtain of anonymity.

Major ALFREDO M. SANTOS, Class ’29 and captain ADAMIN TALLOW, both UP ROTC graduates drew first blood of the Japanese invader in the beach defense of Mauban and Atimonan in December 1941. These two were charged with the delaying actions as the Southern Luzon Force withdrew to Bataan. Major Santos, as a Regimental Commander of the 1st Regular Division again earned the sobriquet of “Hammer of the Division” in the much-renowned battle of the points and the pockets. He later became the first 4-star general of the AFP in 1963.

Major FERDINAND E. MARCOS, Class ’37 distinguished himself in action in the defense of Lingayen Gulf, and in Bataan campaign, and later as a leader of guerillas with USAFIP (NL). A much-decorated hero, he eventually became Congressman, Senate President and became President of the Philippines in 1966.

Major MACARIO PERALTA JR., Class ‘36 was G3 of the 6th Infantry Division of the 6th Military District in Panay when war broke out. With the surrender of the USAFFE on May 6, 1942, he carried on with guerilla warfare in the Island of Panay. He carried out specific resistance war, was raised to the rank of Colonel, later Brigadier General, later became Secretary of Defense and Senator of the Republic.

Brig. Gen. CARLOS P. ROMULO, Class ‘18 another UP fellow was in charge of the famous “Voice of Freedom”. He was assisted in this effort by Captain SALVADOR P. LOPEZ (who became UP President) and Captain FRANCISCO ISIDORO.

Captain SALVADOR ADCEDE, Class ’36 led the resistance fighters in the Island of Negros. Lt. Colonel SALIPADA PENDATUN, Class ’36 was the leading guerilla leader in Southern Mindanao.
The UPROTC alumni mentioned above are just a trickle of the host of VANGUARDS who followed the course of “DUTY, HONOR and COUNTRY” during World War II. Let it be understood that many others had served with the same undying faith and fervor.


ROTC cadets

ROTC cadets who were barely out of their teens refused to went home but instead volunteered to fight the Japanese in the harsh jungles of Bataan. Many of these young boys never saw their family again.
Later in the war, rotc cadets also took part in the hunters rotc

Japanese atrocities

Bataan death march

The march, involving the forcible transfer of 75,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war[1] captured by the Japanese in the Philippines from the Bataan peninsula to prison camps, was characterized by wide-ranging physical abuse and murder, and resulted in very high fatalities inflicted upon the prisoners and civilians along the route by the armed forces of the Empire of Japan. Beheadings, cutting of throats and casual shootings were the more common actions—compared to instances of bayonet stabbing, rape, disembowelment, rifle butt beating and a deliberate refusal to allow the prisoners food or water while keeping them continually marching for nearly a week in tropical heat. Falling down or inability to continue moving was tantamount to a death sentence, as was any degree of protest or expression of displeasure.
Prisoners were attacked for assisting someone falling due to weakness, or for no apparent reason whatsoever. Strings of Japanese trucks were known to drive over anyone who fell. Riders in vehicles would casually stick out a rifle bayonet and cut a string of throats in the lines of men marching alongside the road. Accounts of being forcibly marched for five to six days with no food and a single sip of water are in postwar archives including filmed reports
The exact death count has been impossible to determine, but some historians have placed the minimum death toll between six and eleven thousand men; whereas other postwar Allied reports have tabulated that only 54,000 of the 72,000 prisoners reached their destination—taken together, the figures document a casual killing rate of one in four up to two in seven (25% to 28.6%) of those brutalized by the forcible march. The number of deaths that took place in the internment camps from delayed effects of the march is uncertain, but believed to be high

http://en.wikipedia....aan_Death_March

full account of all massacres of Filipinos by Japanese troops would fill several books. In Manila, 800 men women and children were machine-gunned in the grounds of St. Paul's College. In the town of Calamba, 2,500 were shot or bayoneted. Around 100 were bayoneted and shot inside a church at Ponson and 169 villagers of Matina Pangi were rounded up and shot in cold blood. At the War Crimes Trial in Tokyo, document No 2726 consisted of 14,618 pages of sworn affidavits, each describing separate atrocities committed by the invading Japanese troops.

ATROCITY ON LUZON

While many atrocities were committed on Luzon, this one stands out for its sheer bloody mindedness. Fourteen Filipino resistance fighters surrendered to the Nippon savages after their ammunition was expended. Tied together neck to neck and with hands tied behind their backs, they were marched three miles to their place of execution. Ordered to sit down, another group of prisoners were brought in and forced to dig fourteen holes two feet wide and four and a half feet deep. When the digging finished the fourteen Filipinos, with their neck ropes removed, were forced to jump into the holes while the other group shovelled the earth back into the hole and stamped it down hard until only the head and neck of the victims were visible above ground. Their repugnant duty finished, the grave diggers were then lined up and shot in cold blood. The attention of the Japanese was now focused on the fourteen heads awaiting decapitation. A few soldiers had gone behind some bushes to defecate and after scraping together their excreta on to banana leaves they returned to the buried victims and kneeling down offered each head a last meal. Unable to move, the helpless men could only shake their head from side to side whereupon the Japanese soldiers stuffed the revolting faeces into their mouths amidst peals of laughter from their comrades. After they had their fun, the serious business of execution commenced as an officer drew his sword and with deft strokes separated the fourteen heads from the bodies.

http://www.nhi.gov.p...o...pdf=1&id=33

The initial step of the Japanese marines in launching their campaign of terror was the burning of houses, stores and buildings particularly in the areas of Tondo and Binondo. They were also ordered by Iwabuchi to massacre the civilians –which were done in the worst manner. Women, especially the young were dragged to places called joro houses where
they were abused and raped. Some hospitals, religious institutions as well as the Red Cross were not exempted from atrocities, massacre and looting. The Japanese also murdered even foreigners from neutral countries. Expatriates from
Germany, France and Spain did not escape the bloodthirsty Japanese troops. All in all, the atrocities committed against the civilians—Filipinos and foreigners-- were unbearable and cannot be easily forgiven.

                                           We can forgive but we will never forget!
Conclusion:
The catastrophic battle resulted to serious damages. Approximately 100, 000 civilians died and 50,000 were hurt and
wounded. On the American side, 1,010 soldiers from different units died while 5,565 were wounded giving a total of 6,575 casualties. As for the Japanese casualties, it was recorded that about 16,000 soldiers died during the battle.

“remember Bataan, remember those who died there, for by their wounds you were healed “.

Nauna ka nga brader.  Si Arthur Eamiguel ang Corps Commander nung batch ko na pinalitan ni Harold Lumang midway.  The next year, pinalitan siya ni RP Santiago na minsang nag-adjutant sa amin nung freshman ako na muntik madapa sa sunken habang ginagawa niya yung Adjutant's Strut.

Mabait yung company commander ko, si Tatlonghari.  Nung sophomore naman ako, walang problema kasi naging runner ako (taga-bili ng meryenda).  Si Admin?  Di ba da-matands sa atin yan? LOL!

Naalala ko yung isang DeMolay na naka-enroll sa MS 22 on his 7th year in college.  Isa ang MS 22 sa ilang subjects na natitira para finally maka-graduate na siya sa peyups.  Eh andami niyang TD na hindi inattendan.  Last resort, kinausap niya yung commandant.  Nakiusap siya kung pwede siyang pagbigyan.  Napansin niya yung t-shirt na suot ni commandant, logo ng York Rite (pareho sa avatar ni Masigon).   Tinanong ni DeMolay si commandant kung Mason siya.  Sagot ni commandant, "Bakit?".  Pakilala si mokong na DeMolay siya.  Lalo siyang pinagalitan ni Commandant at bakit daw hindi niya inasikaso yung MS 22 niya!  Sabi sa kanya, "nag-aaksaya ka lang ng panahon iho, umuwi ka na at asikasuhin mo na lang yang ibang subjects mo."  Umalis si DeMolay nang hindi niya alam kung papaano gagawin siya sa MS 22 niya.  Isina-Diyos na lang niya yung RO niya.

Ang ending? Naka-gradweyt si DeMolay at the end of that sem at lumabas na pasado siya sa RO.
