Bataan Defenders.

Unsettling Bataan Death March Monument

Beautiful park honoring those from Bataan, the largest surrender in US history. Located in Veterans Park, which also had monuments for the Vietnam War, Pearl Harbor and more.

I was grateful for the Roadside America app, which led us to a place to continue honoring my husband's grandfather, who was a Bataan Death March survivor and POW. It was a perfect stop on our way to the Bataan Death March Memorial Marathon in White Sand Missile Range, NM.

Bataan-Corregidor Monument.

Unsettling Bataan Death March Monument

The monument is both accurate and unsettling. The bonus: it's located in a Veterans Park next to a museum. The museum is free and worth the stop. It was open 9AM to 5PM when I stopped by.

Bataan-Corregidor Monument.

Unsettling Bataan Death March Monument

Gray granite monument with two extremely starved soldier's helping each other walk.

[Daniel, 12/30/2010]

Sort of a Walking Dead effect, only this really happened to American soldiers at the start of World War II.
