COL LICOPA –

The Japs are reported 20 strong in Mayasang. We need them wiped out here. I am issuing an attack order to you to attack that group in Mayasang as soon as you can get what rifles and pistols you have together.

Supporting you in the attack will be Gagalac, attacking from Calaca sector, and Col. Ilagan of the Canluran from Lemery. You will attack from the south, Gagalac from the West and Ilagan from the East.

Attack the morning of Feb 8th, Gagalac and Ilagan are getting their orders to attack with you.

Good luck and get those Japs out of there.
