Captured soldiers were forced to march in the Bataan Death March where many perished, survivors would be held as prisoners of war for the next 40 months. The 200th and 515th New Mexico Brigade brought home four Presidential Unit Citations and the Philippine Presidential Citation and earned their place in American History.
