        I wish to thank Jobn Koot and Elmer
    Long as well as the committee that worked
    on Lhe Gold Card program. Tam proud of the
    finished product and from the feed back I

    with the card manufacturer did a great job
    both in appearance and information.
       The convention committee is working on
    !.he Norfolk Convention. The plans look good
    and as in the past I hope the members Lake
    advant.age of the many activities in Lhe Nor-
    folk area.
       Congratulations to the many who have
    received their P.O.W. medal. I know there
    were many group presentations which added
    to the stature of this medal. Have a joyful
    Christmas season and a healthy Hew Year
    for '89.

                                HEROES OF BATAAN
Dear Former BataanlCorregidor POWs, Families and Friends:
    It's not a Gutenberg Bible nor an autographed Shakespeare, but it's almost as difficult to find as
either of the above. What is this rarity? If you have a copy of the pictorial book, Heroes of BataaD, hang
on to it! It's almost worth its weight in gold! If you are not fortunate enough to own a copy of Heroes of
Bataan and would like to have yOUf own or additional copies for family or friends. now is your
    Heroes of Bataan, compiled and published by Carlsbad, NM newspaper editor Marcus Griffin, and
printed circa 1945-46, is being released in a second and enlarged edition. Those not in the original book will
have an opportunity to be included. in this enlarged edition. Mr. Griffin's goal was to include a picture and
short biography of every American POW who had participated in the defense of Bataan and Corregidor.
It was his way of honoring those who had fought so valiantly and well and who had suffered the subse-
quent years of imprisonment. He fell short of his goal of including everyone, but the book does include ap-
proximately 1750 individual photos and biographies. 35 pages of candid photos of people and places in
the Philippines before. during and after the defense and full page group photos of the 200th CA (by bat·
tery); Co. A .. 194th Tank Battalion: Co. B. 192nd Tank Batallion; 440th Ordnance Company AVN (taken
at Albuquerque Air Base); the 93rd Bomb Group (Sq?); and the 34th Pursuit Squadron.
     The original 2000-copy printing quickly sold out and the plates were destroyed. Since then, this
highly-sought after volume has been a treasured possession of those fortunate enough to own one. It is
filled with information and memories that are available no where else. It is the immediate center of atten-
tion wherever it appears, and former BataaniCorregidor roWs spend hours pouring over the photos and
rediscovering forgotten unit comrades and prison camp buddies. Every collector of BataaniCorregidor
memorabilia needs their own copy.
     If you, a relative. a friend, or your unit are not already represented. in the original, why not be included
in ,the ,second edition? The cost for an individual submission is a nominal $5,00, Who knows how many
long-lost buddies might recognize you after all these years! Let's try to have all units represented in this
new Wition. For information on including unit photos call or write: Janie Matson, 2130 Hixon Drive, Las
Cruces. NM 88005·3305. (505)524·2357.
