7. My father was due to be transferred to the Philippines in 1962.

He had requested Hawaii. But it was cover to send him on foot, he was a combat pilot, into Laos to watch and report movement on the yet to be named Ho Chi Minh trail. Radios weren’t light in those days.
Luckily he was able to pull strings and be transferred to protecting the free world in West Germany. So I missed the opportunity to live in the Philippines. Best of luck.
