Camp O'Donnell Memorial
Birth: Dec. 7, 1941
Death: Jan. 30, 1945

Memorial to the memory of the "Battling Bastards of Bataan", US Soldiers who fought on the Bataan Pennisula from December 1941 to April 1942, when they surrendered to superior Japanese Army forces. The men were then forced to march approximately 70 miles to Camp O'Donnell, a former US Army training camp, which the Japanese had turned into a Prisoner of War (POW) Camp. The march became infamous as the Bataan Death March, as over 10,000 soldiers of the 70,000 surrendering men were killed by the Japanese during the march. The camp was liberated by the US Army on January 30, 1945. The monument is located in the Capas National Shrine, adjacent to the memorial for the Philippine Army dead. The Cross is a memorial to the thousands of men who died in the camp. This photo was taken by James Litton. On the wall behind the cross are the names of the men who died at the camp. (bio by: Kit and Morgan Benson)
