Editors Note: This year, we will be making a special effort to remember each and every known member of the 192nd Tank Battalion. As part of that remembrance, we will list each day the members who were killed or died on that date, along with links for additional information as available. We look forward to your comments.

Capt. Arthur V. Burholt and Capt. Harold W. Collins both survived the Death March, POW camps and several hell ship voyages. Unfortunately, like several other members of the 192nd Tank Battalion, they died onboard the Brazil Maru on this date in 1945.
