    On the night of January 30, 1945, Filipino guerillas under Captains Juan Pajota and Eduardo Joson effectively prevented Japanese reinforcements at Pangatian Concentration Camp in Cabanatuan. The blockade at Bangad resulted in the liberation of 516 Allied prisoners of war. The joint operation of the guerillas, Alamo Scouts and the U.S. 6th Ranger Battalion was under Lt. Col. Henry Mucci. This event is considered one of the most successful rescue missions of its type in the annals of U.S. military history. (English)

    Sa pook na ito, noong gabi ng 30 Enero 1945, matagumpay na hinadlangan ng mga gerilyang Filipino, sa pamumuno nina Kapitan Juan Pajota at Eduardo Joson, ang pagdating ng mga kawal at kagamitan sa Pangatian Concentration Camp sa Cabanatuan. Nagbunga ang labanan sa Tulay Cabu at pagbabarikada sa Bangad sa pagpapalaya ng 516 bihag ng digmaan. Pinamunuan ang magkasanib na operasyon ng mga gerilya, mga Alamo Scouts at ng 6th Ranger Battalion ng Estados Unidos ni Tenyente Koronel Henry Mucci. Itinuturing ito na isa sa pinakamatagumpay na misyon ng pagliligtas sa kasaysayang militar ng Estados Unidos. (Tagalog)
