"This memorial is dedicated to the brave men and women who defied the might of the invaders at Bataan, Corregidor and other parts of the Philippines during World War II. Thousands died in battle, during the Death March, and while in captivity. Thousands more endured inhuman conditions at the prison camp in Capas, Tarlac. They suffered in the night so that their countrymen would wake to the dawn of freedom."
We read them on books we see them in TV re-enacted many times, they are the fallen heroes of Bataan Death March. Thousand men of mostly Filipinos died during WWII when the Japanese Empire invaded the Philippines. 35,000 men walked under the heat of the sun from Bataan to Capas Tarlac.
