Battle of Hill Eerie (64th Anniversary)

In May 18-21, 1952, the Philippine 20th Battalion Combat Team fought one of their greatest battles in the Peninsula. The Battle of Hill Eerie was a seven-part battle between the United Nations Forces and the CCP. The Filipinos fought and won the last two battles in the Outpost of Eerie Hill. One to take the outpost for the final time and another to successfully defended the outpost for the last time. One of the heroes of the  successful assault was Lieutenant Fidel V. Ramos, future President of the Philippines.
