    I got a lot left to look over ;) I'm just pinpointing some of the noted action around PFC Whittington at the time of his KIA for now. He was in really good company. Antipolo was were the Japanese dug in. Bonsai charges from the cave openings when they ran out of ammo. Accounts were that scores at a time would pour out of the tunnel openings charging with their bonsai Katana swords and get mowed down in turn. It was carnage not caught on film, yet.
    First Team!
