Memo Asking for Extension to File Individual Recognition, July 1947

The Major Phillips Unit was a guerrilla unit that was founded and operated in or around western Batangas town of Calatagan. It was commanded by one Emilio Macabuag and took its name from a United States Army intelligence officer from whom the guerrilla outfit took directions until the latter was caught and killed by the Japanese. In this July 1947 document1, Major Phillips Unit Commanding Officer Emilio Macabuag wrote to the Commanding General of the Philippins-Ryukyus Command, through channels, asking for an extension of time for the filing of individual applications for official recognition.

3. That the last day for filing request for individual recognition is July 31, 1947, so that only two (2) more days are left within which to file said request;

Your kind reconsideration is requested.
