In September the Veteran's Coffee Hour in conjunction with the Honors Program welcomed guest speaker James Bollich, age 99, to come speak. Mr. Bollich is a survivor of the Bataan Death March, and a celebrated writer. He joined the U.S. military in 1942 after Pearl Harbor was bombed and upon arrival in the Pacific Theatre was held captive as a POW for three and a half years. Mr. Bollich spoke about his harrowing story and met with other veterans at the Coffee Hour. He has also written a total of 19 books including Bataan Death March: A Soldier's Story. Our respect and appreciation go out to Mr. Bollich and all those lost in the death march and to those who sacrificed their lives in World War II so that we may live in a better world.
