Roster of the Tanauan Unit, MFAT

The Tanauan Unit was a guerrilla organization affiliated with the MFA or Marking’s Fil-Americans. The latter was a larger organization operating in Luzon commanded by one Marcos Agustin, hence the nickname “Marking.” This organization absorbed elements of Hugh Straughn’s Fil-American Irregular Troops (FAIT) after the American commander was captured and executed by the Japanese Army. Hence, the name “Marking’s Fil-Americans.” In this document1 is contained the roster of the Tanauan Unit of the MFAT as submitted to the United States Army.

The reader will please be advised that this organization, as a whole, did not obtain official recognition as an element of the Philippine Army in the Service of the Armed Forces of the United States. Instead, a number of the men included in the roster below was recognized by the US Army, but because they were part of a composite roster submitted by the headquarters of Marcos Agustin’s “mother” organization.

The roster is contained in individual PDF documents embedded into this page from an external source, paginated for the benefit of researchers or students who may need the pages for citation purposes.

Each page may be zoomed in/out or scrolled up/down using the on board tools provided in the embedding. The time each embedded document loads is dependent on the reader’s Internet bandwith.
