About the Author

Luis T. Centina Jr. was born on August 21, 1921 in Passi, Iloilo in the Philippines. For thirty-four years, he served with distinction as a school educator for the Department of Education in the Philippines.

When war broke out in the Pacific in 1941, he answered the call to defend his country by enlisting in the Philippine Commonwealth Army and was inducted into the United States Army Forces Far East. After the war ended in 1945, he stayed in the Army for a few months as an investigator of the War Crimes Commission that sent collaborators and war criminals to prison.

From 1972 up to his retirement in 1982, he worked as chief Division Statistician in the Division of La Carlota City Schools after toiling as a grade schoolteacher for twenty-four years. He was elected to the board of the Negros Occidental Teachers Federation, which he occupied until 1983. He sponsored several initiatives to improve the welfare of its members, including increasing their burial benefits.
