Hi Jerome. How very interesting! I am the daughter of a navy serviceman who was stationed at Guiuan. My father passed away in 1995, so I can't ask him, but I will look at the pictures I have to see if anyone is drinking Coca-Cola. Maybe we could google for Coke and its connection to WWII and/or the Philippines.
I may call upon you though to do some checking about the base at Guiuan. I'll have to compose some questions and some concerns first though so I won't just be writing to you off the top of my head.
It is very kind of you to thank the servicemen stationed there for the help that was given. I do know that the servicemen worked very hard to protect your islands. I am glad that they were able to do that for the most part.
Thanks for your message. I hope many others will read it also.Sue
