Team From LAFD Completes Bataan Memorial Death March Sunday

Attachment-1 (1).jpegA team of five firefighters from Los Alamos Fire Department smiles after they completed the 26.2 mile Bataan Memorial Death March Sunday at White Sands Missile Range in just under 10 hours carrying packs that weighed some 35 lbs. Pictured are, from left, Firefighter Matt Ortega, Firefighter Michael Crockett, Firefighter Rick Acedo, Captain Gerard Coriz and Captain Timothy Johnson. The memorial march is conducted in honor of the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health, and, in many cases, their very lives.
