Air Force JROTC will be participating in a WWII memorial march, known as the Bataan Death March, this weekend. This event is something we schedule every semester. Our primary purpose for doing this is to honor the 60,000–80,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war soldiers who were involved in this tragic event.
Our cadets will attempt to complete a 14 mile hike at Wayne Hansard Park. If they successfully complete the march they’ll earn a Bataan Death March ribbon on their JROTC uniform. We currently have 50+ cadets signed up.
Anyone is invited to join us, if even for a couple of laps on the track or simply show up to show your support.
Date: Saturday 19 March 2022
Location: Wayne Hansard Park, 5100 Dearing Rd, Talbott, TN 37877 (Softball Field Parking Lot)
