  LOS ANGELES – Clemente Castro [sic, correction: Cacho] Cacas was born in Narvacan, Ilocos Sur in the Philippines in 1910 and came to the United States at age 19 in 1929 -- a few years before the Great Depression. 

 Cacas came to the United States on a whim. He belonged to a few, select group of Filipinos that were allowed to travel to the America during the American Occupation of the Philippines. That group included pensionados, United States Navy men, students, and adventurers like him.
