I am Erwin D. Bonifacio, a local historian from Capiz and a columnist at The Capiz Times. Currently, I am conducting research about unknown Governors of the Province of Capiz.

Prior to the war, he was a member of the Philippine Constabulary. He was born on May 23, 1900, in Negros Occidental.

Anent this, I would like to know his last rank in the Philippine Army and his date/year of retirement. 

Very truly yours,
