April 2018 - A great new book and the Bataan Memorial Death March
A new book by Lisa K. Shapiro
I am recommending this as a good summer read, especially to those who love history and the military.  My comment from the book jacket reads:
"Professor Shapiro captures the essence of Dr. Post's students' grief, anxiety, loneliness and desire to locate their friends or know how they were able to survive during the war.  The book is a testament to the human spirit that never gives up amidst challenges.  Letters are messages from the heart, and the reader will be brought to the hearts and minds of those heroic families who fought for our freedoms and the preservation of our values."
- Raquel R. Ramsey, executive producer of
Never Surrender: The Ed Ramsey Story
Also, several stalwart cadets from the University of Oklahoma Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program completed the 29th annual Bataan Memorial Death March in New Mexico.  A full report was recently published in The Norman Transcript.
