April 9, 1942 Angels of Bataan and Corregidor — Today in History and Fall of Bataan – Subli

77 Americans of the Army and Navy Nurse Corps and a handful of civilians were captured with the fall of Corregidor, becoming the largest group of female POWs, of the war.

via April 9, 1942 Angels of Bataan and Corregidor — Today in History. In memory of all those who were captured in the Philippines and had to endure the Bataan Death March.

I first noticed the April 9, 1942 Bataan date a while back when I saw this blog post: https://subliblog.wordpress.com/2018/04/09/april-9-1942-the-fall-of-bataan/.

You can find a variety of blog posts on WordPress about Corregidor: https://wordpress.com/read/search?q=Corregidor&focus=1.

I don’t recall the name, but I photographed a headstone where the epitaph included Bataan Death March survivor.
