THE STORY OF HOW THE FILIPINO YOUTH ACHIEVED VICTORY IN ONE OF THE DARLKEST ERAS IN THE NATION’S HISTORY.
Emmanuel V. De Ocampo was barely 18 when he first joined the Hunters ROTC Guerrillas during World War II. They stole firearms from the enemy and fought against the Japanese invaders all throughout Southern Luzon. De Ocampo himself stood out as a fierce combatant and inspirational guerrillas leader in many of his battles and operation.
Eventually, Col De Ocampo became the commander of the 47th Hunters ROTC Division. He defeated many of the strongest Japanese forces in the Philippines, including the Japanese Imperial Marines in the Battle of Fort McKinley and Nichols Airfield. And these stories have been list in the national consciousness of the Philippines… until now.
