2d Bn AID STATION ROSTER

The Second Battalion Aid Station records were kept by Charles R. Leabhart.

Regardless of some known omissions and possible other errors, the Aid Station Records are a remarkable piece of history.

Recall that the conditions in combat are hectic and the saving of lives and the welfare of the injured takes first priority.

**** Prior to Corregidor, the 2d squad of 1st Platoon had included Troopers Mammina and Hastings. They, together with  Lloyd McCarter from the 3d squad, had been AWOL and had returned to camp, having been notified from a source within the company that an "alert" was on.  All three were sent to the stockade, and Sgt. Albert  'Moose' Baldwin smoked his freshly acquired cigars.  Lt. Calhoun, recognizing McCarter's key role in the platoon,  sprung him from the stockade to go to Corregidor, leaving the other two, who were not generally liked.  When the 503d returned from Corregidor, Mammina and Hastings were transferred to an Infantry Division.  After the war, they returned to their homes in Chicago, where, it seems, they made serious enemies. Mammina was killed and Hastings fled the state to live permanently in California.

 

                              

 

 

                             Of the 2065 men of both lifts, about 280, or approximately 13.5 percent, were killed or severely injured. Of these, 210 were injured on landing, and another 50 wounded either in the air or on grounding. Some 180 had to be evacuated and hospitalized. Three men who suffered malfunctions and two who swung into the sides of buildings, were killed, and an unfortunate eight mostly men who blew over the cliffs and landed in front of Japanese caves were slain in the air or before they could get out of their chutes. Six remained missing after the final count was in.

(James H. & William M Belote - Corregidor, The Stirring Saga of a Mighty Fortress, Playboy Press)

 

Among those who jumped at Corregidor, three had parachutes that failed to open. Eleven other men sustained fatal injuries when they crashed into demolished buildings or debris surrounding the drop zones. Fifty troopers were wounded either in descent or after landing. An additional 210 were injured -- many receiving severe compound fractures or concussions. The casualties for the 503d RCT troopers on 16 February were 21 killed in action, 267 wounded or injured, and an unknown number unaccounted for.
