Among these was USMC John Marckx (photographer) who served with Lee Harvey Oswald in his stint from Japan to Philipines and back. Their marine company landed at Cubic Point, Philipines in mid January, 1958. About week and half later they were at the Island of Corregidor some 40 miles distant.
At about this time John Wayne on a break from filming The Barbarian and Geisha landed there in a helicopter. He had lunch with the marine officers where the company billeted ie the bombed out ruin of a hospital and flew out, later that afternoon. Oswald enjoyed mess hall duties and cooking meals; it is very likely that Oswald helped to prepare their meal. John Wayne was known for visiting troops overseas, throughout his acting career in WWII, Korea and Vietnam (and probably postwar in Philipines and Japan, where US had a strong military presence).
