20 July 1946
: Reconsideration of Decision Denying Recognition to
Triumvirate Guerrillas, Request for.
: Commanding General, AFWESPAC, G-3 Section, APO 707, Manila.
These two, and many others, are living witnesses to the unflinching courage, unshaken loyalty and unflagging devotion to duty of the Triumvirate Guerrilleros, many of whom suffered mental tortures and were incarcerated by the dreaded Jap Kempeitai, killed or wounded in line of duty during underground missions or during the battle for the liberation of Western Batangas. These two and many others have nothing to gain from the recognition of this Unit, yet they have voluntarily offered themselves as witnesses because they know that the non-recognition of the invaluable services of these guerrilleros would constitute an injustice.
that helped in bringing about the ultimate defeat of the foe.
Lt. Col., Inf. (Guer.)
Commanding Officer, Triumvirate
