My uncle was captured at Clark Airfield the Philippines on Dec. 9th, 1941.  He was a P.O.W. until he passed away on May, 1942.  He was always missed by his family, especially his mother.  My uncle was re-interred at Fort Snelling in 1949. I remember as a child his mother spoke affectionately to her son in Spanish while stroking his gravestone.
