American Cemetery in Manila

We had to go to Manila on Friday to get finger-printed for our visa and to pick up an Elder that had his appendix out last Friday (we took him to Manila, because the local doctor told him last Friday that he had acute appendicitis and that he would see him on Monday....wait, what?).  Anyway, we had a minute and our office couple and our new senior couple took a minute and went to the American Cemetery.  It was a humbling sight and I was in awe.  I lost some relatives here, my Dad served here and many, many died.  I was surprised at all the Filipino names among the missing and dead.  They served valiantly alongside the Americans.
