When a human spirit is put to test, a hero rises. We remember heroes because of their remarkable deeds. We remember because of such extraordinary feat. We remember and we will never forget.

Death March. An infamous time in history that has lived to its name. With an assembled Prisoners of War of about 78,000 (12,000 U.S. and 66,000 Filipino) during World War II, Death March was roughly 65 miles over the course of about 6 days with deprived food, water and above all, an extreme lack of humanly treatment.  It was survived by a fortunate few.

They are not forgotten. We pay honor and respect to the heroes whose spirits were not wilted by harsh circumstances through this 8.5 mile Bataan Memorial March 2013. To our heroes, we remember. We will never forget.
