Bataan Death March 71st anniversary

On this day in 1942, approximately 12,000 US soldiers became POWs, and then what is know as the Bataan Death March, occurred. This was one of the biggest atrocities in US history. Approximately 650 soldiers perished, and all were beaten, and became malnourished due to the harshness of the Japanese Imperial Army's treatment. Let us all remember the young men who have endured, and sacrificed, so much for our freedom.
