Veterans Affairs officials say the consul general of the Phillipines Consulate General plans to host a Day of Valor ceremony to honor World War II veterans.
The ceremony on Tuesday at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific will honor Filipino and American soldiers.
Officials say the ceremony hosted by Julius Torres will mark the date when U.S. and Filipino soldiers were forced on the Bataan Death March. Nearly 10,000 people died during the 66-mile march.
