The Filipino-American Memorial Endowment, Inc. is asking the public to donate to their fund to continue their mission to maintain and preserve the Philippine WWII Memorials, including the Death March Markers. To recognize donors, they are offering a special, limited edition “Challenge Coin” made from enameled, polished brass. This 2″ coin will make a great keepsake, or a gift for someone with ties to Bataan or the Philippines. For more information on how to get one of these coins, or how to support FAME, please go to their website:

MBDO members will remember FAME as the organization responsible for maintaining the Subic Bay Hell Ships memorial.
