Letter to Ceferino Machado on a Request for Individual Recognition, September 1947

The Fil-American Irregular Troops was a large guerrilla outfit founded by ex-United States Army officer Colonel Hugh Straughn. It operated in a wide area in Luzon and had many units in the different towns around the province of Batangas. The Batangas Guerrilla Headquarters, operating in the town of Batangas, was one such unit. In this September 1947 document1, Thomas Brown of the Adjutant General’s Office of the Philippines-Ryukyus Command wrote to Ceferino Machado of the Batangas Guerrillas Headquarters-FAIT on the latter’s request for individual recognition.

GSCPI 201-MACHADO, Ceferino B. (Civ) 4 Sept. 1947

Mr. Ceferino B. Machado
1-A W, Quezon Institute,
Quezon Cty

Dr. Mr. Machado:

The Commanding General directs that you be informed that your request for individual recognition as a guerrilla is not favorably considered.

After extensive investigation and full consideration or your case, it is considered that the service rendered is insufficient to justify official guerrilla recognition.

However, the investigation of your activities has revealed indications of prior service as a member of the United States Army Forces in the Far East. Therefore, it is suggested that you communicate with the Recovered Personnel Division of this headquarters for information regarding any remuneration that you may be entitled.

Sincerely,



s/ Thomas J. Brown
