Abstract Collipriest (b. 1926) was raised in Salt Lake City by his widowed mother. He had an older brother who was a pilot in the Navy. Collipriest was drafted in 1944 and sent to Manila. Shortly after he arrived there, his brother was killed in action. As the last surviving son of a family, he was no longer eligible for combat duty and so remained in Manila as a member of General Baker's staff.
