FAME’s mission is to help preserve and maintain tangible reminders of the shared values for which Americans, Filipinos and their allies fought side-by-side in World War II.

FAME’s objective is NOT to build new memorials but to raise funds in order to help maintain existing monuments dedicated in memory of the Filipino-American cooperation during World War II. FAME works with like-minded individuals, companies and organizations, serving as a catalyst to effect any repairs, renovation or refurbishment necessary to keep these monuments a fitting memorial to those who survived and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

News from VP Robert Hudson. ...

Meeting with the Department of Public Works and Hiways in Bataan. Rosalie and I met with the heads of the DPWH this past Monday concerning the protection of the Death March Markers. An agreement was reached on FAME being notified of any road work that may endanger Death March Markers. I will be turning over to them the GPS coordinates of each Marker in Bataan. This will help them determine if any Markers are in the path of road work . I received some very disturbing news from the engineers. The National Hwy. or Roman Hwy. as it is known here is being widened from 4 lanes to 6 lanes. The road from Bagac to the Roman Hwy. is being widened from 2 lanes to 4 lanes and parts of the National Road are being widened from 2 lanes to 4 lanes. This may affect upwards of 60 Markers which will have to be relocated. This will be a massive and very expensive undertaking. To tell the truth, I am not sure at this point in time that FAME has the funds to tackle this. It will be the main topic at out next board meeting.

We exist to memorialize the men and women who stood up to a foreign aggressor and saved freedom for themselves, their families and especially their country.

We, of course, maintain all of the Death March Markers and various other monuments in the Philippines to those who, despite wanting to live, chose to in what way they could, to give us this day.
