Join Margaret Garcia for a presentation and excerpts from her book Tell Me Another War Story, chronicling the history of the New Mexico National Guard 200th Coast Artillery, their valiant stand on Bataan in the Philippines, and their reluctant surrender on April 9th 1942, followed by the infamous Bataan Death March and status as POWs. She will also talk about her father, Evans Garcia’s experiences growing up in southern New Mexico, in the battle and prison camp, and how he and his “buddies” stayed together after coming home, serving their fellow veterans and doing all they could to keep the Bataan story alive.
