ABSTRACT
The article describes the planning and action of a U.S. Army combat patrol on the island of Samar during the Philippine Insurrection against the U.S. The lack of a men who could be spared to perform a serious offensive effort is cited as a reason for the decision of commanding general not to prioritize the taming the islands of Samar and Leyte. Captain Francis H. Schoeffel was the commanding officer (CO) of the E Company of the 9th Infantry assigned to the coastal town of Tarangnan. The battle between the Army and Dios Dios band in Dapdap is detailed.
