Information about Camp Pangatian Memorial Shrine
Camp Pangatian Memorial Shrine
In Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, Philippines, there is a World War II memorial called the Camp Pangatian Memorial Shrine. It is situated where Camp Pangatian, a military training facility that ran for twenty years before being transformed into an incarceration facility for Allied prisoners of war during the Japanese occupation, formerly stood.
The American Battle Monuments Commission sought to remember those who lost their lives during the Bataan Death March in 1982. Since the Philippines and the Philippines have strong ties, the Philippine government approved the start of construction. During World War II, the Japanese imprisoned around 9000 American POWs here. As World War II came to a close, US Army Rangers released the detainees.
