The annual trek is a tribute to the tens-of-thousands of World War II Veterans who were surrendered to enemy forces in 1942, thousands lost their lives under the torturous conditions which they were marched through the Philippine jungle. Only over 500 soldiers were eventually rescued as POW’s in 1945.
On a ~related note – Funny man David Spade puts his Benjamins where it counts.
Veteran’s Day & Memorial Day – not the means for a three-day weekend. Thank you Veterans and Military Families. Thank you Grandpa for serving your country and your family – In your honor and in memory of those who did not make it back we thank YOU through our actions for defending our freedoms.
