On May 6, 1942, defenders of Corregidor surrendered to Japanese forces determined to neutralize the last American defensive position protecting Manila Bay in the Philippines.

Among the 11,000 U.S. and Filipino defenders captured was Wesley Nevans, a Marine.

“My dad is 90 percent of the reason I am so involved in the Veterans Day Committee,” as well as the Nov. 11 event in downtown Iola where veterans and active service personnel will be recognized, averred Tom Nevans.
