Welcome to My Site
If this is your first visit, welcome! This site is devoted to my life experiences as a Filipino-American who immigrated from the Philippines to the United States in 1960. I came to the US as a graduate student when I was 26 years old. I am now in my early-80's and thanks God for his blessings, I have four successful and professional children and six grandchildren here in the US. My wife and I had been enjoying the snow bird lifestyle between US and Philippines after my retirement from USFDA in 2002. Please do not forget to read the latest national and International News in this site . I have also posted some of my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos in this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringing on your copyrights. Cheers!

Ben Steele Drawings of the Bataan Death March
Yesterday, I posted my review of the book on the Bataan Death March, Tears in the Darkness. The protagonist in the book is Ben Steele, a cowboy from Montana who became a painter and Professor of Art after the war. In the first video, Ben Steele sketches and drawings are shown with his own description of the events. The next four videos are professional videos of the Bataan Death March up to the Raid of Cabanatuan-saving the prisoners of war from the camp in early, 1945 just before the end of the war. I hope you enjoy the videos.
