Memorial C Company 192nd Tank Battalion
Birth: Nov. 25, 1940
Port Clinton
Ottawa County
Ohio, USA
Death: Apr. 9, 1942, Philippines

Memorial to honor the members of Hq Company and C Company, 192nd Tank Battalion. These Ohio National Guardsmen were called to federal service in late 1940. The company's ranks were filled out with men drafted into the Army from Ohio.
In the late fall of 1941, the 192nd was sent to the Philippine Islands. Company C lived through the Japanese attack on Clark Airfield. In January 1942, platoons of C Company destroyed platoons of Japanese tanks and infantry at Baliuag. This was the second tank battle of WWII, involving American tanks, but the first victory.
After fighting for four months against the Japanese, the American and Filipino forces surrendered to the Japanese on Arpil 9, 1942. The members of the company took part in what became known as the Bataan Death March. They were held in POW camps in the Philippines and later Japan and Manchuria. Others died on what became known as "hell ships" while being transported to Japan.
