Zo722. On my visit to Corregidor, the 7th Nov. 2016 with some Marine Friends, we noticed the Kwiecinski Couple was honored by three organizations; the couple had intimate relations with. The Kwiecinski couple resided on Corregidor approximately from 2008 to 2015. The Corregidor Foundation INC. (CFI); Filipino-American Memorial Endowment (AMSHAM PHILS.); Sun Cruises INC (SCI). A plaque was placed under the plaque that honored Steve Kwiecinski’ father who manned the last firing mortar at Battery Way on the 6th of May 1942.Read More
Zo721.The Kwiecinski family had a good readable image of the plaque at Battery Way dedicated to Walter Kwiecinski. He and his crew served on the last gun, still able to be fired, at Battery Way, Corregidor Island, in the former Fort Mills. This plaque tells the rest of the story.
Steve and Marcia Kwiecinski send the god copy of the plaque and these other two images. Thank you very much!
Zo720. This picture is from the blog of the Kwiecinski couple. When they lived on Corregidor Island, the ex-Fort Mills, they published a new page every two weeks or so. Now that they returned to the USA no new pages have been published but all the previous pages are available at this URL or click here:
Zo723. HONOR, COURAGE, FAITH: A Corregidor Story
The story of a son tracing his father’s footsteps and discovering a true and inspirational story of courage, faith, and patriotism in the days of Bataan, Corregidor, and Japanese POW camps in WWII.
“I find Honor, Courage, Faith: A Corregidor Story very well written, flowing well. In Part 1, the author does a first-rate job of intertwining his own travel diary with his father’s personal accounts. The items in Parts 2 and 3 add a great deal to the story and it was really exciting to learn that the author actually got to meet two men from his dad’s battery. Their comments clarify some of the questions raised and unanswered in Part 1. This is a very fine account of a hero and a son’s love for his father, and is a must-read for those who want to know more about Corregidor. It gives the reader a more personal view of the war experience, and brings the siege and ensuing captivity to life.”
