Dear Mr. Moore,
Could please add my father's name, Willard James Dixson, to the list. My father was born in the Philippines and was interned when he was 7 years old. My father says,
"I was in internment and a POW in Santo Tomas Hospital Prison camp during the years of 1941- 1945. At that time I was the young age of 7. All American born citizens were put in the camp. I am the son of Ralph Clifton Dixson (1905-1959) a Gorilla war fighter of the American Army during the Philippine Japanese war."
Thank you much,
Jeneane (Daughter of Willard Dixson)
Jeneane and Willard Dixson
or would like to be added to my POW/Internee e-mail distribution list,
please let me, Tom Moore, know.
