We brought 60 copies of our recently published book with us from Manila, and wish we had brought more. Readers have told us that they are really enjoying it. One of our former tour guests wrote us saying, “It arrived two days ago and it is as advertised. It will be one of my most valued books. Thank you very much. Chuck” We are still hoping that we will be able to direct folks in the States to an American internet site that will sell the book here without overseas shipping charges, which are costly. We are expecting the eBook soon.
Our friend, coastal defense expert and author Glen Williford, purchased a photo collection of pre-war batteries on Corregidor and the other neighboring islands. He is making them available for purchase. We bought a set of the photos when he was on Corregidor this winter, and found them very interesting. If you might be interested, please contact us. We include one sample from Glen's collection.
We have received word that a 93-year-old veteran of the Corregidor liberation, John J. Teffenhart, WWll 503rd Paratrooper (Co H), plans to return to the Rock on August 20. We are sorry that we will not yet be back from our travels, but want to extend our welcome to him and his family.
