My Dad served in the Philippines during World War 2, on Cebu specifically. He used to talk about how he was slated for the Invasion of Japan. I always wondered if that were really true. One year, God rest his soul, he put together a wall hanging of all his patches, ribbons and service awards. And now I have that. Sure enough, I think he was right. Here is what I found.
The 1st Cavalry Division in World War II.
