The American Legion in the Philippines: part I

“That’s the way things are done.”

I got involved with the American Legion in the Philippines early in 2004. My wife had prepared a home for us in the islands while I worked long hours. Eventually, the time came to settle into the new home. We landed in Manila New Year’s Day early in the morning. My wife and I made our way to our home in the hills above Olongapo City only to find it had been robbed and ransacked in the weeks before we got there. My dream to relax in the tropics had taken a sharp detour.
