Jan. 27th-30th, 1942

Operation against enemy at LONGOSKAWAYAN POINT just beyond Mariveles. Enemy suffered heavy casualties. 2nd Bn 57th did most of the fighting. Enemy firmly entrenched in caves which were fully equipped with food, ammunition, radios; evidently this had all been done before the war even started. Food dropped to enemy by parachute we recovered quite a bit of it. 57th suffered considerable casualties.
