Ruins on Corregidor Island: Who is the Real Protagonist?

Sharing you an article I wrote after our Corregidor Trip last year.

Uncomfortable, I ignore photos of relatives and acquaintances proudly displaying their military badges. It seems to me they have already signed a contract that they may die anytime, anywhere.

One of the SAF44 massacred last year in the name of their profession was a schoolmate of mine and no word could describe my anger when their commander-in-chief denied his participation in the mission.

My reality would just be a hundredth of the sorrow of parents, friends and loved ones of those who died on Corregidor Island during World War 2 when America regained the Philippines from the Japanese.

According to Armando, our tour guide, he found one dog tag on the island and sent it to an American authority that keeps such item. One day, he received a letter from the family of the owner the dog tag informing him that the soldier was 19 when he died during the war.
