Anthony P. DELUCIA

Pfc 1st Platoon, "A" Company

KIA, Corregidor

 24 February, 1945

 

On page 192 of Devlin’s “Back to Corregidor” he tells of a trooper who was killed when a Sherman tank suddenly backed and pivoted.

By day’s end on the 24th, word got to us in the third Platoon that it was Delucia.

On 24 February, we ("A" Co.) moved to the east side of Malinta Hill and formed a perimeter for the night. The 1st Platoon of "A" Co. moved around Malinta to the north with the two tanks and that was where Tony DeLucia was crushed by one of the tanks. The tank gunners also killed 3 or 4 of our men at the same time.
