Withdrawal of PQOG Units’ Requests for Recognition, January 1947

The President Quezon’s Own Guerrillas (PQOG) was a guerrilla organization which fought the Japanese in World War II. The guerrilla outfit was among those that operated in Southern Luzon, including Batangas. It had many units in the province, one of which was in the eastern Batangas town of San Juan. In this January 1947 document1, one Vicente S. Umali, Commander of the President Quezon’s Own Guerrillas, wrote to the Guerrilla Affairs Branch of the United States Army to withdraw all PQOG units’ requests for recognition.
