The President Quezon’s Own Guerrillas was a large guerrilla outfit operating in Luzon during the Japanese occupation up to liberation. It had many elements in the different towns of the Province of Batangas, including one that operated out of the lakeside town of Talisay. In this document1, Carlos Mendoza, Commanding Officer of the 2nd Battalion, Talisay Regiment of the President Quezon’s Own Guerrillas, wrote to the Commanding General of the United States Armed Forces in the Western Pacific officially asking for his guerrilla outfit to be recognized by the United States Army.
