Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 16, 1919
Death: Aug. 24, 2006
Saint James
Phelps County
Missouri, USA

Howard was with E. Battery of the 200th Coast Artillery (AA) in the Philippines when the Japanese occupied the island nation. Howard was commandeered as a POW to a trucking detail after the fall of Bataan and was not forced onto the Bataan Death March. He and several other men were assigned to drive and maintain American-made trucks out of Bacolod, Negros. In July 1943, Chrisco and a handful of other prisoners escaped. Finding refuge and fighting with Guerrillas, Chrisco was rescued by USS Crevalle (SS291) in May 1944. In 2003, Howard was recognized as an "Outstanding Missourian" by the Missouri House of Representatives.
