Bataan Memorial Death March
What is the Bataan Death March?
During World War II, on April 9, 1942, 75,000 United States
soldiers and Filipino soldiers were surrendered to Japanese
forces after months of battling in extreme-climate conditions.
The U.S. soldiers were from the multiple branches of the U.S.
military: Army, Army Air Corps, Navy, and Marines. Among
those seized were members of the
US Army 31st Infantry Regiment
There will be 3 options for showing your Patriotism:
• Option 1 is the full 26 mile March. There will be check
points and rest stops along the way.
• Option 2 is at the half way point there will be a bus for you.
• Option 3 is also a short 1 mile if you prefer to
participate that way.
The march will start at 13 Stripes Supply Co./QQP parking lot.
This is not a race, we will March together, this is to teach, remember
and honor those heroes that sacrificed so much for our Freedom.
Tickets are $25 and will include an event t-shirt or $40 with a Hoodie,
beverages and snacks at checkpoints along the way provided by various partners,
a challenge coin upon completion and food from Shagin Pit at the party.
This will be a historic event for Aberdeen and the surrounding area!
