Bataan Death March on March 21, 2010 At White Sands Missile Range

The Bataan Death March will take place on March 21st at 4:30 am. That's right, we need to be at White Sands Missile Range at 4:30 am. This will be my 7th year. I did the full 26.3 miles once and now I do the 15 mile March. The March takes place at White Sands Missile Range. One can either do the 26.3 mile March or the 15 mile March. Last year 5,700 people participated in the March. At least half are soldiers. I primarily do the March to spend a day with our soldiers. I say to as many soldiers as possible "Thank You for Your Service to Our Country". I view it as a day of thanks and appreciation of our troops. The costs of the March is $65 for individuals and $275 for a team of 5 (each team member pays $55). Several folks has asked me to form a team. If you wish to participate as a team member, please email me by March 5th so I can collect the money for the registration fee. If I don't hear from at least 4 other individuals, then I will encourage all of you that are interested to register as individuals. Please email me directly and I will give you my mailing address for a check for $55. [masked]. We can also discuss car pooling the morning of the March. We will need to leave Las Cruces at 4 am. Please review the web site for the Bataan Death March. You do have to go to White Sands Military base the Friday or Saturday right before the March to pre-register.

    This was a tremendous event. The organization and support before, during, and after the march was superb.

    What an awesome day this turned out to be. I did the honorary march and it truly was an honor. I loved everything about this. It was really inspiring and very emotional to be able to march with our military, veterans, and wounded warriors. I didn't find the group but I'm new and have never been to a meet-up before. Hopefully I'll be able to join the next one.

    Bataan itself was amazing. It was my first foray into anything like this - and I will be back next year and hopefully many more years to come. It was a highly emotional and truly inspiring to see and participate with so many great men & women who serve this country. I doubt I will participate with this group in the future due to lack of organization. Solo though - Oh yeah - I'll be back!

    The Bataan Death March is one of the largest community events in Southern New Mexico. It's a day to remember those that have died while serving our country. It's also an opportunity to say thank you to our troops. Soldiers come from all over the world to participate in the March. It's always been an emotional and joyful day for me. As long as I can walk, I will participate in Bataan.
