Correigidor Island

Today we took a cruise to Corregidor Island which was invaded by Japan in WWII.  The island served as strategic importance because it blocks the entrance to Manila Bay.

The American Forces and Philippines were forced to surrender but then was taken back several years later by the US.  This means the island withstood not one but two devastating attacks.

Its amazing to see what once represented the first line of defense for Philippine Bay in now a place of tourism.

There is so much history between our two countries.
