Not forgotten



Local veterans (above) gather at Plymouth City Hall in the fog Tuesday morning to commemorate National Prisoner of War Remembrance Day. Jim Riesenberg served as master of ceremonies for the program. Gene Blindauer of Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post 243 and Dave Majerus of World's Cheese Center VFW Post 5612 place the POW/MIA flag on the flag pole in front of City Hall as Bill Balke of Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post 243 holds the American flag. The two flags flew over City Hall all day, marking the 71st anniversary of the surrender of American troops (estimated to be 12,000) and Filipino forces (estimated to be 66,000) to Japanese forces on the Phillipine Islands peninsula of Bataan. Japanese intelligence grossly underestimated the number of forces involved and had no way to move them 65 miles to a prisoner of war facility except by foot, leading to what became known as the Bataan Death March.
