The Cabanatuan American Memorial was erected by the survivors of the Bataan Death March and the prisoner of war camp at Cabanatuan in the Philippines during World War II. It is located at the site of the camp and honors those Americans and Filipinos who died during their internment. ABMC, recognizing the significance of this memorial, accepted responsibility for its operation and maintenance in 1989. Click here for the AMBC webpage:

From the below webpage I learned this:

Twenty-three Filipino USMA graduates fought in WWII. Sixteen of them became Prisoners of War (POWs), of whom seven were executed by the Japanese.

BGen. Vicente P. Lim (USMA 1914) was the first Filipino West Pointer. He was the stalwart Division Commander, 41st Division, USAFFE. He survived the Bataan Death March, escaped to join the guerrillas in Mindoro, was recaptured by the Japanese, and executed in January, 1945.

Colonel Rafael Garcia (USMA 1916) was captured by the Japanese after the fall of Bataan in 1942, and became a POW. He was PMA Superintendent at the outbreak of WWII.
