75th Anniversary Surrender of Bataan Dinner
When?Start time: Saturday 6:00pm (08 April)
End time: Saturday 8:00pm (08 April)
The Bataan-Corregidor Memorial Foundation (BCMF) of New Mexico is inviting everyone to the dinner honoring New Mexico’s WWII POW’s of the surrender of Bataan.
The dinner will be at Sandia Resort & Casino, 6:00 pm, April 8, 2017
Guests at the dinner will include the former governor of Nueva Ecija, Philippines, Tomas Joson III and his son, Edward Joson, the current Board Member of Nueva Ecija and also former Vice Governor. Governor Joson is the son of Capt. Eduardo Joson who was involved in the planning and execution of the rescue of the POW's at Pangatian, Cabanatuan City where the last of the Bataan Death March survivors were sent. Also local politicians will most likely attend along with some of the local high ranking military personnel, retired and active duty. We will also invite the Governor Martinez and the Philippine Consulate General.
Bataan-Corregidor Memorial Foundation mission is:
To preserve the memory of New Mexico's 200th and 515th Coast Artillery men, defenders of Bataan and Corregidor, who when surrendered suffered 3-1/2 years of the most inhumane treatment known to mankind as prisoners of the Japanese, as well as the historical integrity of Bataan Memorial Park, for future generations. (Attached is the flyer for the Bataan-Corregidor Memorial Ceremony with the information about these POW’s.)
BCMF is paying for all the expenses associated with the memorial ceremony at the Bataan Memorial Park and the dinner honoring these WWII veterans. We are also paying for their transportation and lodging expenses to attend the events we have planned for them this year. This is the best gift we can give to the WWII Bataan POW's Bataan Surrender survivors, a time for them to reunite after 75 years!
Any donation you can give us to help offset our cost in carrying out our mission would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and we truly hope you will be able to attend our dinner.
