- The "A Tribute To Courage"
Memorial in Kissimmee, Florida, at the corner of Lakeshore Boulevard and Monument Avenue. It depicts a scene from the Bataan Death March: two soldiers, one American
and the other Filipino, are propping each other up while a Filipino woman is offering water to them. It symbolises the unique
friendship between the United States and the Philippines - the two countries fought together during World War II, and the heroism
and comradeship between the Americans and Filipinos. It was sculpted by Sandra Storm and is made of bronze. A brick walkway
encircles the monument and there are commemorative plaques depicting the history of the Bataan Death March and the Memorial.
American and Filipino flags fly side by side. It is the only statue in the United States
dedicated to the heroes and survivors of the fall of Bataan and Corregidor and the Bataan
Death March .
