Bataan Death March Survivors--Bilibid Prison


Recommended Posts

Picked up an interesting "short snorter" that belonged to an airman in the 386th BS of the 312th BG. On the back of one note are the signatures of five men liberated from Bilibid Prison on 4 Feb 1945.

 

The men are:

Pvt John F. Jordan--60th Coast Artillery Regt (1st Bn)

PFC Raymond J. Kuhn--60th Coast Artillery Regt (C Battery)

Pvt Charles J. Graboski--59th Coast Artillery Regt (C Battery)

Pvt Joseph J. Petrosius--31st Infantry Regt (Co G)

ACOM Jim Hann--USN

Now there is some history! I am sure they were elated to be going home after enduring what they did.

 

Nice find.
