Do you know Joaquin Cabrera?

This photo was taken in May of 1948 at the Coast Guard long range aid to navigation (LORAN) installation on Saipan. The people in the photo from left to right are, "Sam" Taylor from St Louis, Joaquin Cabrera of Saipan, Arthur Kelly from Brooklyn, New York, Pete Mundy from Brooklyn, New York, Lloyd Jones from Terra Haute and Abner Chapman from New Hampshire.

One of the Americans in the photo emailed the photo to someone living on Saipan, who in turn emailed it to me.

So, do any of my readers know any of these guys? Who is Jack Cabrera?

i read your blog accidentally while i'm looking for the biological father of my father-in-law named JOAQUIN CABRERA. We are fom the Philippines and we are really trying to locate him. The only thing we knew was he lives in Guam and has served the military (US) and was assigned in Clark Post Office here in the Philippines in the early 60's when he met our grandmother, ELENA N. MIRANDA please email me at dabbyvitangcul@yahoo.com of any news about JOAQUIN CABRERA.. We will appreciate it very much. God Bless you.
