My Uncle Jack Bergamini enlisted in the Marines following his graduation from Columbia University in 1942. His goal was to help liberate his parents and younger brother and sister who were in a Japanese concentration camp in Baguio, the Philippines. My grandfather, John Van Wie Bergamini Sr., was an architect (who also attended Columbia U.) who worked for the American Episcopal Mission in China, Japan, the Philippines, and Africa, designing churches, schools, hospitals and various other buildings, including St.Luke's Hospital in Tokyo (1936).
