Saw Col. Olson on TV (Military Channel)
Apr 30th, 2006, 4:53pm
I chanced upon the Tour of  Duty series episode today titled "Bataan & Corregidor (Goin' Back)" on the Military Channel.  It showed 12 Americans, with two Bataan vets (Col Olson and Carlos Montoya) and relatives of other vets tour the WWII historical  spots in the Philippines.

Highlights included:
- Corregidor
- Bataan, Mt. Samat, Mariveles
- Fort Santiago
- Bilibid prison
- Calumpit Bridge
- San Fernando, Pampanga train station
- Camp O'Donnell
- Cabanatuan
- Subic Bay for the ground-breaking of the Hellship Memorial
- Wreath laying on the sea above the Oryoku Maru

They are bound to show this episode again. I did record the show.
