Bataan Survivors Carry On

By on 8.19.11 | 5:40PM

I greatly appreciate Quin Hillyer's correction. Earlier today, I wrote that Albert Brown was the last American survivor of the Bataan Death March when, in fact, he was the oldest. I have corrected my obituary for Mr. Brown accordingly.

It is gratifying to know that there are still survivors of the Bataan Death March amongst us who are here to tell us what happened during those dark times and yet remain proud to have served their country. Again, I can only hope we in turn are prepared to listen and to remember because they won't be amongst us forever.
