Filipino Navy officer. Commodore Ramon A. Alcaraz was an officer in the Philippine Navy during the Second World War. A member of the 1st graduating class (4-year curriculum) of the Philippine Military Academy in 1940, he served with the Philippine Army after graduation then joined the Offshore Patrol, predecessor of the Philippine Navy.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Commodore Alcaraz: First Victim of Philippine President Marcos" by Ernesto O. Rodriguez (1986), p. 111: "Alcaraz was born at high noon, Sunday, August 31, 1915, in the Parulan barrio, Quingua (now Plaridel), Bulacan."
Sunday would be a mistake as this date was a Tuesday. Same date of 31 August 1915 given in "Who's Who in California," Volume 14, 1983. Other resources give 15 August (which was a Sunday).
Plaridel, Bulacan, is now part of Metro Manila.
