From the prison camps in the Philippines and
Japan to the cities and towns of New Mexico,
the soldiers and their families survived.
The soldiers strengthened by their common
identity as New Mexicans, survived by
reminding each other of their families,
friends, and common experiences back home.
“IT WAS HELL ON EARTH.”
