Military Bio:

Glenn D Frazier of South Pasadena Florida (Tampa Bay) joined the U.S. Army on July 3rd, 1941. Asking for a duty in the Philippines Glenn was assigned to the 75th Ordinance Company in Manila P.I. His job as a Sargent, was to get ammo to and from the front lines at the Battle of the Points in January of 42. After being captured in Bataan on April 9th, 1942 at the age of 17, Glenn spent 3 ˝ years in Camp O`Donald and Billibid P.I. Glenn also survived the Bataan Death March that lasted 6 days and 7 nights with no food and only a sips of water. On the morning of September 3rd, 1945 21 POW’s including Glenn that were located in a Japan Prison Camp 500 miles by railroad from Tokyo escaped by train to Tokyo, having no trouble with the Japanese they rode all morning to Tokyo. On the morning of September 4th, after riding trains all night, they arrived at General MacArthurs’ Headquarters in Yokohama, Japan. As they approached the Grand Hotel (MacArthurs’ Headquarters) Glenn remembers seeing Old Glory flying above him and the sight of that sent chills up and down his back.

My Message to Future Generations:

Bataan Death March Yea though I walked 106 miles through the valley and in the shadow of death, I feared the evil of the imperial Japanese soldier. They had the guns and bayonets to use against me. All I had was the love and faith that god would comfort me. I knew the lord was my shepherd. They forbid me to lay down in green pastures for six days and seven nights. I was marched by running water but was forbidden a drink. The Japs prepared their tables before me but I was forbidden food. They maketh me march without mercy. But only God could restoreth my soul. He leadeth me step by step along the way in the face of my enemies. He promised to anointest my head with love and understanding and even though my cup was empty. I knew it would be filled in his name’s sake. I knew that goodness and mercy would follow me. My life would be spared in his name. I knew that even though the path was long and hard, it was the path of righteousness for his name sake. By Glenn Frazier Survivor of the Bataan Death March Glen is currently writing a Book called Hells Guest to be published in late 1999.
