Guerrillas
I, the undersigned, hereby certify that the LICOPA UNIT, GLINT, commanded by Luis Licopa, Captain PA, was an organized and functional unit at the time they first contacted an Intelligence Party at Abra de Ilog, Mindoro, in October 1944.

The LICOPA Unit did, as a whole, aid materially in the Intelligence coverage of the Southern Luzon Coast. Further, they acted as couriers, coast watchers and in many ways performed noteworthy services for the U.S. Army.
