Dear Maria,

Glad to be of help and only too pleased to see Filipino members of the US Navy in World War 1 recognised in this way.

Please feel free to use any of the information you want. I noticed there are a quite a few men whose next-of-kin were listed in the Philippines.

Good luck with your work, and best wishes,

Dear Mr. Smith,
Sir, I would like to thank you for your excellent website. I was able to identify Filipino WW1 USN personnel while browsing thru the names in your database. I also found matches in the VA gravelocator for some of the names w/ the same dates of death & military rank which I will paste @ the end of this e-mail. I am an amateur researcher of Filipino descent veterans in the U.S. Armed Forces. I maintain websites from WW1 thru Iraq war. I do not earn a cent from any of my websites & absolutely not involve in the revenue from the ads that the website host earn to recover their cost of providing free space for my websites. I feel a need to explain this, because I would like request use of your Filipino military database listed in your website which I will always credit to you. I will also post later a  description of your website with your name in the 1st page of my website. I will paste @ the end of this e-mail my website so you will have an idea what my website is all about
 
Again, thank you.

Absolution

The anguish of the earth absolves our eyes
Till beauty shines in all that we can see.
War is our scourge; yet war has made us wise,
And, fighting for our freedom, we are free.

Horror of wounds and anger at the foe,
And loss of things desired; all those things must pass.
We are the happy legion, for we know
Time's but a golden wind that shakes the grass.

There was an hour when we were loath to part
From life we longed to share no less than others.
Now, having claimed his heritage of heart,
What need we more, my comrades and my brothers?

Siegfried Sasson
