University of Wyoming Cowboy Battalion

Bataan Death March  


The Bataan Death March is a tradition that honors the soldiers that fought in World War II, specifically, those who defended the islands of Luzon, Corregidor, and the harbor forts of the Philippines. These men marched for days in the Philippine jungles, a region infested with malaria at the time. The march represents what the Bataan soldiers endured during their long forced trek through the Philippines. The Cowboy Battalion is proud to remember and honor these brave soldiers by participating in this event.
