    Philippines is so popular… Spanish colonized it in 333 years, American colonized it 44 years and japan invaded it 3 years… So many countries

    Don't you know in wartime there was always a unit of battlefiels cameraman under the military who also fought like a soldier in combats , their main duty was to film to keep war material.
    So much blood and bones of the brave , selfless people sacrificed for peace.

    My mom was there during the liberation of Cebu. She was about 12 back then. She witnessed the bombing of Cebu City. The shoot down and crash of an American fighter plane. And the landings of American troops in a pier. She said the American troops were always called by the same name, “Joe”, as in “Hi Joe”! And they would give away candy bars. She passed away in 2014, I’ll always treasure my mom’s war stories of old Cebu.
