Response to 192nd Tank Battalion in the Philippines 1941 - 1942
> In the January-February issue of the U S Army's ARMOR magazine, there is an all too brief article entitled "'Weaver's Warriors' The 192nd Tank Battalion in the Philippines".
Although 'tis clear in the URL accompanying the previous post, the year would be 1989.
There is an earlier relevant article, "The First U.S. Tank Action in World War II", written by COL. (ret.) Thomas Dooley, ARMOR, July-August 1983, pp. 10ff.
It was published as a companion piece, though perhaps fortuitous, to "The 26th Cavalry in the Philippines", authored by CPT. Jeffrey Woodall, ARMOR, January-February 1983, pp. 8ff.
Whether Dooley's article focuses on one or both [light] tank battalions--former national guard units--sent to the Philippines, I don't presently remember (if just one, I think the 194th Tank Battalion). I am presently west of the Mississippi River, but when I return to New Hampshire, I shall clarify the content of the Dooley piece for the forum.
