Cecil R. ROBINSON

Pfc "E" Company, 503d PRCT 

K.I.A., No Name Point, Corregidor

23 February 1945

 

At about this time I was moving along the reverse slope of No Name Point, trying to pin down where the Jap fire was coming from but it was difficult to see Wheeler Point clearly because of the bushes along the top of the ridge.  I found one small gap in the bushes and stuck my head up for a good look. One of the men next to the gap said "I wouldn't do that, Lieutenant, they have that spot zeroed in." 

I took the man at his word and moved a few feet down the line where the view was not quite as good but did not draw any fire. 

Pfc Cecil Robinson came along the line right behind me, looked through the gap and was drilled, neatly, between the eyes.

I don't think he would have felt a thing.

Just at 1215 one of the lookouts in the gun pits at the tip of Unknown Point reported that he could hear movement below him. This was so on the northwest side of the point. Pfc Robinson unconsciously looked out over the edge of the cliff and was shot squarely in the center of his forehead, killing him instantly.
