World War II Veterans who served in the Philippines

My father, Elijah Armenta, served in New Guinea and Southern Philippines from May 11,1944 to February 5,1946. He passed away in Chicago in 1999. There are not that many WWII veterans around to tell their stories. Just wondered if anyone out there has stories to share.
