Sharing another photo of an old photographer friend, Ver Noveno, from his FB page Ver Noveno Images. Thanks for this.

Mount Samat is a historic mountain located in Pilár, Bataan. Near its summit is this giant white cross called the Mount Samat National Shrine which is dedicated to the fallen Filipino and American soldiers who served during World War II. (wikipedia)

One soldier down. General Douglas MacArthur and his men (except for one) remain standing at the memorial park after a powerful storm surge brought about by typhoon Yolanda hit the province of Leyte last Nov. 8.

Seventy years later, American soldiers indeed made another come back, this time to help in the relief and rescue operations of thousands of people left homeless by the super typhoon.
