In the midst of death and in the comradeship of the doomed, I found out that I had courage, endurance, strength, the capability to sacrifice . . . the supreme virtue of manhood. In Bataan, I realized my capability for nobility as I fought for the freedom of other people, and that in doing so, I had, somehow, given meaning to the brotherhood of man and had vindicated God’s faith in His creatures.

 

– From the eulogy for Lt. Emmett Gibson, Co. B, delivered on April 9. 1959 by Brig Gen. Ocampo in the Philippines.
