The pictures had a special meaning for me.  I was on Mindoro for several 
months in 1945.  I was in the 96th Infantry Division.  We made the 
landings on Leyte and Okinawa, and after the fighting ended on Okinawa 
we went to Mindoro to rest up and receive replacements.  We were warned 
that Mindoro had the highest malaria rate in the Philippines, and I 
remember it as an end-of-the world place.  There were many half-wild 
cattle, which belonged to people in Manila, not the locals.  It is where 
I saw three pygmies, each wearing only a breech cloth and carrying a bow 
and a quiver of arrows.  They came down from the hills to seek 
protection from Japanese soldiers who were settling in and stealing 
pygmy women.
