Michael V. "Buddy" Campbell
Mar 01st, 2004, 10:12pm
 
Michael V "Buddy" Campbell was a Native American from Wolf Point, Montana who served with the 26th Cavalry Unit. He survived the Bataan Death March. On November 6, 1942 he was one of the 750 men that were loaded into the hold of a "Hell Ship". Fewer than half survived the twenty day trip to Yokohama. Buddy worked as a slave laborer for three and a half years, building dry docks, working in graphite mines, and loading ships and trains. He died in 1996. His nephew is looking for more information about his uncle and would appreciate hearing from anyone who remembers Buddy.

If you have information please contact Bob Campbell through Maria Porter (mporter@bigsky.net), a member of the board of the Rocky Mountain Museum of Military History in Missoula, Montana.

Hello, I've recently been doing a lot of research on my grandpa, Charles Ball who was with the 31st Infantry, Philippine Division in Bataan.  Grandpa Charlie died over there at the San Vincente River on April 6th.  Your Grandpa Buddy and my Grandpa Thomas Ball were friends back home, as my grandpa Tom served under General Patton in North Africa.  The 31st Infantry was attached to the Philippine Scouts.  I've recently come across some literature mentioning a Mike Campbell and I'll see if I can find those citations and get back to you.   Smiley
