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.

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

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