Annual Memorial ServiceMaywood Bataan DayThe Origins of Maywood Bataan Day and theMaywood Bataan Day OrganizationThey were barely more than kids, only in their teens andearly twenties. Their buddies from Proviso High Schoolcalled them "Weekend Warriors". They were membersof the 33rd Tank Company, 33rd Infantry Division of theIllinois National Guard, based at the Armory in Maywood, Illinois. In September 1940, the Draft Act hadbeen passed and selected National Guard Units werecalled into active duty to prepare for the possibility of entering the war in Europe. The 33rd Tank Company wasorganized May 3, 1929 at Maywood, Illinois and was inducted into active Federal service as Company “B” ofthe 192nd Tank Battalion on November 25, 1940.33rd Tank Company in trainingThat day, one hundred twenty-two of these men left the Armory at Madison Street andGreenwood Avenue in Maywood to board a Northwestern Railroad train, which tookthem to Fort Knox, Kentucky, where Company B joined Company A from Janesville,Wisconsin. Company C from Port Clinton, Ohio, and Company D from Harrodsburg,Kentucky, to form the 192nd Tank Battalion.After further training and participating in Louisiana maneuvers, the 192nd Tankerswere at Camp Polk, Louisiana, to be fully equipped for overseas shipping. In Octoberof 1941, 89 men of the original Battalion group left the United States for the PhilippineIslands. They arrived in Manila, Luzon, Philippine Islands on November 20, 1941 —Thanksgiving Day. From the port area, they went to Clark Field on Luzon, 60 miles tothe north of Manila.The Army had expected to give these young Americans additional military training anddevelop the fighting skills of the newly mobilized Philippine forces, but that trainingnever happened. In less than three weeks, on December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was attacked; six battleshipswent down to the bottom of the harbor. A few hours afterthe attack on the Hawaiian Base, Japanese bombssmashed into Clark Field and other bases on Luzon.Thereafter, Japan dominated both the air and the watersaround Luzon.Japan’s next move was the actual invasion of the island,beach by beach. By Christmas Eve 1941, GeneralDouglas A. MacArthur, Commander of all the IslandAllied tank breaks through(Continued on page 4)3

Annual Memorial ServiceMaywood Bataan Day(Origins of Maywood Bataan Day Continued from page 3)Forces in the Philippines, knew his exhausted troopscould not stop this Japanese invasion. He put into actionplans, made much earlier, for a mass withdrawal of allPhilippine and American forces into Bataan; nearly80,000 hungry and battle-worn troops. The 192nd TankBattalion was tasked with providing cover for these withdrawal operations — they would be the last defendersinto Bataan.Clothing, barbed wire, gasoline, sand bags, medicine -everything was in short supply. The scarcest commodityof all was food. By the end of January, after the forceshad been only a month in Bataan, malaria, scurvy, anddysentery had reached epidemic proportions. Pilotswithout planes, cavalrymen without horses, gunnersGen. Wainwright (L) andwithout tanks, and Filipinos without shoes all fought dogGen. MacArthurgedly against the relentless tide of Japanese invadersand their unending artillery bombardment. In March,General Douglas A. Macarthur was ordered out of the Philippines to Australia to assume command of all Far East forces. General Jonathan M. Wainwright III took command of the allied forces in the Philippines.After 3 months of bitter fighting, which delayed the Japanese forces long enough toprevent an invasion of Australia, Bataan surrendered on April 9, 1942. The followingday, some 70,000 American and Filipino soldiers, as Japanese captives, all becamevictims of the greatest atrocity of the Pacific War: the Bataan Death March. A seemingly endless line of sick and starving men began theirtrip from the peninsula to Camp O'Donnell in central Luzon. The former Philippine cantonment was to havebeen an American airfield before the Japanese invasion,but had to be abandoned before completion.The entire march to Camp O'Donnell was 112 kilometers (70 miles). Because of the deteriorated condition ofthese men and the brutal actions of their captors, no oneknows how many died during that march. Probably5,000 to 10,000 Filipinos and between 600 and 700Americans lost their lives. What is known is that the dying and suffering did not end when the men reachedCamp O'Donnell; the "Death March" would not end for along time.Newspaper headline of surrenderThere would be more misery, more starvation, and more indignities, but most of all,there would be much, much more death before freedom. Of the nearly 10,000 Ameri(Continued on page 5)4

Annual Memorial ServiceMaywood Bataan Day(Origins of Maywood Bataan Day Continued from page 4)cans taken prisoner at Bataan, between 6,000 and7,000 died in Japanese prison camps during the threeand-one-half years of their captivity. Of the 89 men ofthe 192nd who left the US in 1941, only 43 would returnfrom the war.Today’s Maywood Bataan Day Organization (MBDO)traces its roots back to the American Bataan Clan(ABC). This small group arose out of the anguish ofDeath Marchmothers over the welfare of their sons, who were lostwhen Bataan fell. After suffering through just over fourmonths of promises of military and supply relief, that was to be sent to the men fightingto slow or push back the invasion of Imperial Japan, these family members decided totake matters into their own hands.Viola Heilig, mother of Sgt. Roger Heilig of Co. B of the 192nd Tank Battalion, was oneof the founding mothers and also the first president. In the summer of 1942, the ABCregistered itself as a charitable foundation and set about collecting the items, that prisoners of war would need. They conducted food drives, collected clothing, and workedwith the Red Cross to determine where to send the items. During the summer, little information came out about the fate of the captured troops, but some heavily censoredletters from the prisoners confirmed that at least some of the men of the 192 nd were stillalive.On the second weekend of September, 1942, the ABC helped sponsor an incredibleweekend of celebrations of the American spirit, just as America fully turned its efforts tothe war effort. Recent victories in the Pacific Theater of the War led some to believethat the tide was turning. A parade through the streets of Maywood that weekend featured hundreds of marching bands, floats, soldiers, and celebrities. Even ChicagoMayor Kelley was there. (See back cover of this program for copies of the original program and ticket from that event)One of the featured speakers at an evening rallywas Illinois Governor Green (1941 – 1949), whoremarked, “.the heroism of the men who defended Bataan and Corregidor and our other outposts will endure forever, giving new inspirationand new courage to free men everywhere”. Morethan 30,000 people lined the parade route andjammed the grandstand area to hear the speakers. The families of the captured men had a placeof honor on the reviewing stand. Senator CharlesSen. Brooks accepts invitation from ABC members,including Viola Heilig (2nd from left)(Continued on page 6)5

Annual Memorial ServiceMaywood Bataan Day(Origins of Maywood Bataan Day Continued from page 5)W. Brooks (1940 – 1949) said, “Maywoodtonight exemplifies the true American spiritthat will win the war.”That early optimism of a quick victory fadedas the Japanese dug in and began a war ofattrition across the Pacific. As the hopes fora swift return of their sons were dashed, theABC turned its efforts from sending aid totheir sons, husbands and fathers to becoming more of an advocacy group on their beThe Lido Theatre Bataan Muralhalf here in America. While the troops inBataan sang their ironic song about beingthe “Battling Bastards of Bataan”, forgottenby everyone, including “Uncle Sam”, the ABC insured no one forgot about them.ABC President A.C. McArthur, whose son, Sgt. Albert C. McArthur, Jr. was reported ashaving died in a Japanese prison camp in 1943, began to speak more and more fervently about the need to provide reinforcements to the forces fighting in the Pacific. Forexample, he openly advocated for additional forces to be deployed in China to beready for a final push into Japan to quickly free all prisoners. And the ABC nevermissed an opportunity to mark the passing of April 9th – the anniversary of the fall ofthe Philippines. Throughout the rest of the war, the ABC and another group in Illinois,the Bataan Relief Organization, acted on behalf of the prisoners whenever and wherever they could. And each September, they would have a bond drive and parade tomark those efforts.In 1946, the “Veterans Council” was organized fromVFW, American Legion and ABC members—as well asreturning survivors of the 192nd—but also other members of the American Legion and Veterans of ForeignWars. On Bataan Day 1946, the returned heroes ofBataan, who were able, marched down Fifth Avenue inMaywood at the head of the Bataan Day Parade as honored guests of their hometown. On that same day theABC helped dedicate a memorial in Maywood that featured a light tank, similar to the one that the men of the192nd had used in the defense of Bataan.Proviso High School Marching BandThey continued to mark Bataan Day in September, and the annual event became thelargest community event in the western suburbs of Chicago with a huge parade, banquets, guest speakers, and even a “Miss Bataan Day”. This tremendous outpouring of(Continued on page 7)6

Annual Memorial ServiceMaywood Bataan Day(Origins of Maywood Bataan Day Continued from page 6)community and patriotic pride continued throughout the 1950s, 1960s, and well into the1970s.During 1964, the Veterans Council made a great effort to contact all men and women,who were POWs, to come and join Maywood in this event. One hundred thirty-eightformer POWs came to the O’Hare Inn on September 12, 1964 as guests of honor. Atthis testimonial dinner, Congressman Harold Collier, Maywood’s Congressional representative, was handed a resolution to make this day a National Day — CongressmanCollier went on to introduce this bill (House Joint Resolution 165) in Congress.In June 1973, a number of concerned citizens of Maywood requested assistance fromthe Village Mayor, David White. With his help, and with the help of civic organizationinvolved, the Veterans Council was reorganized as the Maywood Civic and VeteransAssociation for the Preservation of Bataan Day. Later, the name was changed to theMaywood Bataan Day Organization.To mark the 50th anniversary of the Bataan DeathMarch, a gala banquet was held in September 1992 atthe Terrace Restaurant in Lombard, Illinois. Memorialservices continued to be held each year on the secondSunday in September at the location of the tank in Maywood Park (4th Avenue and Oak Street).In January 1999, the Maywood Village Board of Trustees approved a proposal by the Maywood Bataan DayMaywood Veterans Memorial ParkOrganization to establish a Veterans Memorial in thesoutheast corner of Maywood Park (1st Avenue andOak Street). The plan called for bringing together the major mementoes of Company“B” (the tank dedicated in 1946 and memorial plaques), as well as a World War I cannon, to ensure the continuing recognition and preservation of an important part of Maywood’s heritage.In March 1999, an historic photograph of Company B, 192nd Tank Battalion, similar toone which hung in the lobby of the Lido Theatre in Maywood, was installed in the History/Board Room on the 1st floor of the Carnegie Library (original wing) in Maywood.On Bataan Day, September 12, 1999, the newly created Veterans Memorial was dedicated. Speakers at the historic occasion included Brigadier General Edward J. Dyer,U.S. Army, Assistant Division Commander for Maneuver, 24th Infantry Division (Mech)& Fort Riley, Brigadier General David Harris, 35th Adjutant General, State of Illinois,and the Honorable Emelinda Lee-Pineda, Consul General of the Philippines.Today, the MBDO continues to perpetuate the sacred honor of marking Maywood’sBataan Day each year. Recognition has grown to include not only the local heroes ofMaywood, but also their valiant brothers-in-arms – the men of Companies B, C and D(Continued on page 8)7

Annual Memorial Service(OriginsMaywood Bataan Dayof Maywood Bataan Day Continued from page 7)of the 192nd. And another important aspect of the battle to defend Bataan has alsogrown in importance – the presence and support of the Chicago area Filipino-Americancommunity. Today, Filipino-Americans are an important part of the MBDO and throughtheir efforts, and attendance at the annual Maywood Bataan Day event, they are helping preserve not only the memory of the men of the 192 nd, but also the incredible valor,sacrifice and brotherhood that the Filipinos showed in defending the Philippines, shoulder to shoulder with Americans.As we move into the 21st century, the MBDO is well-positioned to perpetuate the memory of why Maywood marks Bataan Day on the second Sunday of September. Throughthe efforts of the MBDO, and the support of those who hold these memories as sacredas the MBDO does, no one will ever forget the sacrifice of these brave soldiers in WWII– or the dedication and support of their families through their long captivity. VietNow and the Field Cross CeremonyVietNow originated in Rockford, Illinois as a Vietnam Eraveterans’ organization. As the years passed, and America’s soldiers were asked to step up and help defend people in other parts of the world, the officers of VietNow decided to change the bylaws and open up the books to accept veterans of all conflicts from the Vietnam Era to present day active duty service personnel.Today, members of VietNow will perform a “MonumentCeremony” more commonly known as a “field cross”. Itconsists of a rifle, helmet, dog tags, boots, and a foldedAmerican flag. As each item is brought out, it is inspectedand then placed in its proper place. As these items areassembled into the “field cross”, a reader will explain tothe audience the significance of each item.After all the items have been assembled, a folded American flag is placed at the base, and a final salute is executed. This dramatic ceremony will be presented by theDuPage Chapter of VietNow Color Guard, Jeff Agonath,Chairman.More information on VietNow at: http://www.VietNow.com8

Annual Memorial ServiceMaywood Bataan DayObtaining Medals for the Men of the 192ndOne of the most rewarding facets of working with the Maywood Bataan Day Organization is the chanceto help immediate family members receive the medals that the men of the 192nd earned for their heroicservice. In the confusion and relief of the end of WWII, many of these men never bothered to collect thecommendations that they were due. Today, these awards often bring a welcome memory to the survivors and their families.The MBDO is honored to help and our President, Col. Richard A. McMahon, Jr., has some tips for families, who wish to research and hopefully receive these medals. Please read the following for more information.Medals Awarded to the Men of the 192ndBronze Star MedalGood Conduct MedalPrisoner of War MedalAsiatic-Pacific Campaign MedalAmerican Defense Service MedalWorld War II Victory MedalCombat Infantryman BadgeHonorable Service Lapel Button WW IIDistinguished Unit Citation Ribbon/Presidential Unit CitationThe actual medals awarded vary, according to the specific role and location that each man had in thebattles. However, generally these medals were awarded to those who were taken prisoner.To see these medals, and learn their history, please visit: to Receiving MedalsRather than repeat them here, the specific steps to request a list of awarded medals, as well as the actual medals, can be found vice-records/get-service-records.htmlAs part of that process, you should end up with a list of the medals, awarded to the 192nd veteran. Thiswill leave you with one of two scenarios:1. You request the documents and find that the medals that have been awarded are those on our list.Next, if you are considered "primary next-of-kin" you can request replacement or, if you are not considered "primary next-of-kin", you will need to purchase the medals yourself. Col. McMahon has experiencewith this medal supplier: You request the documents and find that the medals that have been awarded do not include those onour list. Then a case has to be made to the US Army's Human Resources Command, Alexandria, VA, byletter with attached proof, for any that are missing. Here again, if you, as the "primary next-of-kin" request, then you will get medals and certificates. If you are not "primary next-of-kin", then you will receivea letter that verifies eligibility and have to purchase the medals yourself, using a source such as the onecited in scenario #1 above.NOTE: PRIMARY NEXT-OF-KIN means spouse, child, father or mother, brother or sister, grandchild.9
