Grandpa in the Jungle
February 3, 2011
66 years ago today, my grandfather did something special in the Philippines:
Sadly, he died shortly before I was born. He didn’t talk much about the war to family, so I don’t have any war stories to tell here. He did feel the effects of malaria for the rest of his life.
The Battle of Munoz was against perhaps the largest concentration of Japanese tanks encountered during the war. A report and study of the battle can be found here.
