Map showing the route of the 80 mile Death March after the surrender of american and Filipino soldiers to the Japanese on 9 April 1942
I had a veteran who came to one of my guys’ meeting who survived the Death March and subsequent imprisonment under the Japanese. Unlike a lot of other veterans he didn’t wear an identifier that he had, and the only reason I figured it out was that I caught on when he said he’d been at the surrender.
He stood apart from the other guys I work with as well, who are all flyers and have that flyboy-bomber glamor to them and who gloss over the details of their service quiet easily in conversation by misdirection. What I’ve found is those on the ground are very different, they have no glamor and don’t want you to romanticize their experience. As you can imagine when I asked him about it, he got real quiet.
"Do you know what they did to us?"
I told him yes.
"My best friend in the service is the only reason I’m here, I kept falling behind, straggling and he made me move. They shot him. He tried to catch food that civilians had thrown at us and he missed, first time the whole march. They left him on the side of the road like a dead animal, like he was nothing more than a stray."
And that has stayed with me for the last five years.
