“The Jap soldiers made us gather on a small hill off the main highway. At the same time, Jap artillery moved in a valley behind this hill. There were over 500 to 600 American soldiers on this hill. The Jap artillery started to fire on Corregidor. The first three rounds of return fire from Corregidor were short of the Japanese artillery and landed in the center of the group of American POWs. This shell landed about 25 yards from where I was sitting. I found myself laying on the ground, blood coming from my nose ... The next shells from the Americans came closer to the Jap position and then hit their guns and ammunition dump.”
