Original Caption: Spanish evacuees who fled the U.S. bombings in Manila only to run into the 8th Army invasion at Nasugbu, south of Manila, offer a welcome to 11th Airborne Division troops. These civilians only a few moments before had been hiding in foxholes. They were quick to recover their poise and offer their hospitality to the Americans.
