Notice Malinta Hill is in back. Since the virus crises started it seems CFI did not renew or terminated the contract with a civilian security service and the Philippine Military sent two teams over here to help, apparently that stated in March or April last year. I did not take a picture but I talked to 3 young people who stayed one night and brought tents, they had rigged their tents not o far from the South Dock.

This building, right now, houses a Philippine Navy Team (Navy SEALS) who help keeping Corregidor Island safe from marauders, scrappers, unauthorized visitors etc. This building is located in the former San Jose, the former main village on Corregidor, at the west foot of Malinta Hill. Before that it served as a restaurant with other services like renting a tent. It appears it was built by the Philippine Navy before I started visiting Corregidor in 2004, because 4 Navy Ratings are engraved at a former Flagpole base including their names and rates.
