Chuck Alianza

December 19th, 1941 was my sixth birthday. It was also the day the Japanese forces invaded the Philippines where I lived. That began two and a half years of hiding in the jungles and mountains while my father, as a local underground guerilla leader, lead the fight for his countries freedom. Thirty years later I returned to help the very people who had saved my life.
