Leyte memories

The terrible storms that recently hit Northern Leyte in the Philippines reminded me about my time there.

I spent three years overseas in World War II, from 1943 to 1945.

I went through the Panama Canal to Australia, on to British New Guinea and Dutch New Guinea and then on to southeastern Leyte in December 1944 to January 1945.

I was there during the monsoon season.

I can see why the people in Northern Leyte had it so bad. The monsoons were terrible enough.
