Topic: Green Island to the Philippines

Can anyone give a general account of the MTB Squadrons that went from Green Island to operations in the Philippines, and then on to the burning of the hulls on Samar Island? I assume several of the squadrons traveled to Manus Island to prepare for the invasion of Leyte. Then following the surrender, I understand that some were involved in bringing in Japanese stragglers from the surrounding islands. Any discussion will be greatly appreciated. My interest is in Ron 23, but I'd like to know more about this phase in general.
