April 9th the Philippines commemorates Araw ng Kagitingan (“Day of Valor” in Filipino) or Bataan Day the fall of the Philippines. This signaled the start of what is known Bataan Death March.

I was unable to find anything that actually said how it was commemorated and I do not want to go into a lot of detail about what happened but will say there is much more to read about the soldiers who lost their lives during this ordeal.

So it would be nice to take a few minutes to remember those who suffered during war and gave their lives.
