A MASS FOR William A. Hauser, 62, a survivor of the Bataan death march and of 3 1/2 years in Japanese captivity during World War II, will be at 11 a.m. Monday in St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church, 306 W. 4th St., Hinsdale.
Mr. Hauser, who was a U.S. Postal Service branch supervisor and past commander of the Hinsdale VFW, died Thursday in Hines Veteran Administration Hospital.
Mr. Hauser, a lifelong resident of Hinsdale, enlisted in the National Guard in 1940 and was sent overseas in 1941 as a member of the 192nd Tank Battalion of Maywood. He was captured during the fall of Bataan in 1942.
