Commander Rowe's Certificate on the Services of the Licopa Guerrilla Unit

The Licopa Guerrilla Unit was a guerrilla outfit under the command of one Luis Licopa and operated out of Lemery, Batangas. In this document1, Lt. Commander George F. Rowe of the United States Navy, in charge of guerrilla affairs prior to and after the Nasugbu Landing of 31 January 1945, attested to the services that the Licopa Guerrilla Unit rendered to aid the Allied cause in World War II.

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.
