Bataan Death March, POW

His father Dr. Vincent Homer Spensley wrote letters after learning our Govt. was spending money and man power in Europe vs.: not sending help to these poor men at Bataan.
His son Homer Spensley reported to have starved to death when he was a Prisoner of War. Due to his Fathers efforts an Agreement was reached that the Red Cross would have access to all prisoners, and All prisoners would have certain rights, and to be treated in an human way. Never again would prisoners of war be starved to death or tortured.
