Bataan Death March Memorial

capas national memorialTired, hungry defenders, like heroes old,
Held their ground, brave and true to the last man.
The smoke of battle cleared. A crimson flood
Lay like a carpet on the hallowed ground.
O heroes, you died not in vain. New blood
Picked up your cry in one united sound
Until victory the fight must go on,
Each Filipino heart, A Bataan!

Juan L. Raso,  WW2 vetern

And when the world shall wake again
From grim decay to growth and beauty,
Let no one ever know my pain,
But I have done my humble duty.

Amador T. Daguio  WW2 Vetern and writer

slung on bamboo poles, their living com-

a “Procession on the Dead” from dawn
to dusk. Available historical records

prisoners of war incarcerated within the
Capas POW camp, a total of 25,000
Filipino and 2,500 American servicemen were
