Corregidor Island (the Island of Correction)
Corregidor comes from the Spanish word “to correct”, there were some claims that during the Spanish Era it was used a penitentiary or correctional institution and called El Corregidor. At that same era, this was also known as the ship gate way entering Manila Bay or modernly known as Bureau of Customs, wherein documents needs to be checked and corrected before docking to Manila bay.
The tadpole shaped island also became the American military reservation area where historic battles with the Japanese during World War II. Should you want to know more about the Corregidor World War 2 secrets, there’s a good reading reference at www.corregidor.org about the code room and “cryptanalysis”.
The island as per my perspective is very strategic by location. The building structures ruins reflects good engineering, planning and logistics of the US Military . The fortress of defense where many heroes was made and being remembered to date. And their death results to nations friendships. A salute to bravery and compassionate love for a nations victory and freedom.
Below is the message inscribed in the Pacific Memorial War Wreath;
“Sleep, my sons, your duty done, for Freedom’s light has come; sleep in the silent depths of the sea, or in your bed of hallowed sod, until you hear at dawn the low, clear reveille of God.”
