About Captain Jose M. Zuño

From our readers about: Captain Jose M. Zuño

From my dad's WWII photo albums, among the Bataan survivors during the first celebration of independence day in Rosario, I think he was the most senior among the USAFFE vets: Capt. Jose M. Zuño, Inf.,USAFFE.

Aside from his Bataan experience, he was at one time the Operations and Training Officer as well as the Combat Platoon Commander of the FAIT guerillas in the area.

Before reporting back to active duty once the Philippines was secured, he worked as a civilian employee with the 325th Evacuation Hospital (US Army) in Rosario (where the PVGMA is now located).

He reported back to active duty and was attached to the AFWESPAC (US Army Forces-Western Pacific) which was earmarked for the invasion of Japan (that did not happen). He left the army as a captain and was in that celebration.
