About Valentín Arrastia

Valentin Arrastia y Roncal joined the army at the age of 15. He travelled to Manila as an infantry man aboard the ship "Valencia" on 01 November 1883, two days before his 19th birthday.

Valentin acquired land in Pampanga and became one of the wealthiest landowners of his day. He is a footnote in Philippine history as the man who provided for school materials for an impoverished Lubao boy, Diosdado Macapagal, who would grow up to become the fifth President of the Third Republic of the Philippines.
