Corregidor: A Trace of History.

Yesterday, April 9 is the “Araw ng Kagitingan” (Day of Valor) for the Philippines. On this day we pay homage to the fall of Bataan to the Japanese troops in 1942 during World War II. A part of this history can be traced in the small island of Corregidor where countless Filipinos, Americans and Japanese fell victims to the senseless war that is.
