The Fil-American Irregular Troops or FAIT was a large guerrilla organization founded by the retired United States Army Colonel Hugh Straughn and had many affiliate units in Southern Luzon, including Batangas. The 6th Infantry Regiment, McKinley Division, which operated in the town of Lemery, was one of these. In this page is a transcription1 of a written communication sent to the Guerrilla Affairs Section of the United States Armed Forces in the Western Pacific with allegations against the McKinley Division operating in Batangas. This communication was signed “Same” so it is not clear from whom it came. This document is nonetheless included for historical purposes, but it is left to the reader or researcher to form a conclusion on the validity or non-validity of its contents in relation to the other documents on this particular supposed guerrilla organization.
