1945, February 25

Ilocos Norte is the first province in North Luzon to be liberated from the enemy. Last battles fought with the Japanese are those on Tipcal Bridge, Currimao (Feb 22) and over the Mabusag River, Badoc (Feb 24). (This success was achieved by the 15th Infantry despite the lack of logistics and little experience in such tactics as ambush raids.) [Ancheta; Salazar et al]
