Tacloban City (21 October) — A very dedicated American veteran was among the spectators of the annual Leyte Gulf Landings celebration held at the McArthur Park in Palo, Leyte yesterday.

Gilbert Andrews, 61 and a retired medical technologist by profession, came alone all the way from the United States just to witness the 65th anniversary of the return of General Douglas McArthur and his company to Leyte.
