Army Reserve Soldiers tackle Bataan Memorial Death March
U.S. Army Reserve Command Sgt. Maj. Eric Archuleta with the 4th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas, shakes hands with U.S. Army Col. (Ret.) Ben Skardon, a survivor of the original Bataan Death March, at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, March 25, 2018. Skardon spent three years as a prisoner of the Japanese Army during World War II until rescued by Russia in 1945. The Bataan Memorial Death March honors the U.S. service members and Filipino Soldiers that were forced marched 65 miles by the Japanese Army through the Philippine jungle in April of 1942. Events like this challenge a Soldier’s body and mind, while ensuring America’s Army Reserve units and Soldiers are trained and ready to deploy on short-notice and bring capable, combat-ready, and lethal firepower in support of the Army and our joint partners anywhere in the world.
