The People / the Military: Apart from, but a Part of, the Community

By Louis Gleek (1975)


American diplomat and Historian Lou Gleek chronicles the development of the U.S Army and Navy from its arrival in the Spanish/ America and Philippine/ America wars up through the 1930’s. Main bases at sprawling Fort McKinley, the Walled City and The Fortified Islands of Manila Bay were sought after duty stations. A pampered lifestyle, with many recreation benefits, awaited assigned armed forces personnel.
