I have travelled to the POW Memorial Site in Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija in the Philippines. I lived in the Philippines for about 6 months when I went to get married. The town I lived in was just a few miles from the POW Memorial and I crossed the bridge many times that was blown up after the POW Raid/Rescue by the US Rangers and Philippine Scouts. I also have a "1 Peso" bill that was printed in the US for the Philippines like what you have shown. I just don't see how to post pictures to my post here...I would like to share my pics, just don't know how to post them. It also was somewhat difficult to get signed up for this page, why do things have to be so difficult?....
