Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

The Filipino-American War-The Forgotten War
How many of you (who are 50 years old or younger) have heard of the Philippine-American War, 1899-1902? The two videos summarizes the war for your information and perhaps wonderment! You will enjoy these two videos if you love history. As the saying goes, you will never know your Future if you do not look back to your Past.
A more detailed description of this war can be found in Andrew J. Birtle book " US Army Counterinsurgency and Contingency Operations, 1860-1941.
