Before the war, this used to be a military training camp for twenty years but was converted into a concentration camp for Allied Prisoners of War during the Japanese occupation. Some of the survivors of the infamous death march from Bataan to Corregidor in April to May 1942 were imprisoned here. A shrine now honors the brave rescue of POW’s by the Filipino guerillas led by the late Governor Eduardo L. Joson. The camp is a popular tourist destination area for the veterans of WWII and their families who visit our country under the WWII Veterans Homecoming programs.
