To the Men of Bataan:

 

Especially the 200th

 

May the immortal words of MacArthur: “NO ARMY EVER DID SO MUCH WITH SO LITTLE,” be ever a reminder of your HEROIC DEEDS and sacrifices.

 

And may we be considered unworthy of your respect if we fail to keep alive the American Way of Life and those valued ideals, you fought, starved and died for.

 

Any may we not forget all other men and women in uniform who are fighting so valiantly to get you back home.

 

The Ray V. Davis Family
