This is dedicated to my Uncle Augustine J. Quevas. He survived the Bataan death march. Survived the Davao Penal colony, then was placed on board the Shinyu Maru with hundreds of other men when on Sept. 7th the USS Paddle ( a US Navy submarine) torpedoed the ship not knowing it carried over 800 of our men.
Quevas, Augustine J., Sgt, USAAC, 19 BG 30 BS (Heavy), Shinyo Maru, 44.09.07
