Description:
Mr. Brooks grew up as the child of missionaries in the Philippines. He and his family endured the Japanese occupation from 1942 to 1945, including internment in the Los Banos internment camp. He was liberated by Allied forces in the famed 2/23/45 raid on Los Banos. After returning to the US, he was drafted and served in the Army of Occupation in Europe. He spent much of his career in the missionary field in the Philippines and the US.
