M/Sgt. Herrera, Jr. vowed he would never surrender, so he gathered 3 Filipinos and they started the recruitment and training of other Guerrilla Soldiers. He established a Bivouac at the mountain sides of Negros Islands and equipped his hideout with telephone communication for fast intelligence. He staged many ambushes against the Japanese soldiers and was the only Filipino Guerrilla Leader who captured, alive, 21 Japanese soldiers in an ambush encounter.
To try to capture him, the Japanese army even hired a Filipina Spy and sent her on a secret mission to entrap M/Sgt Herrera, but he soon discovered the plot before it could unfold. Honorable Ramon Nolan, Former Philippines Ambassador to the United States said of M/Sgt. Herrera, "Your war achievements might have been duplicated but they could never have excelled by any other soldier."
