HOWARD V. PUGH, JR. (1918? - 1942/3?)

March 16, 2009


I am taking a chance that your sight is still being kept current? I am looking for any information, and I realize that many, many decades have passed since WWII, however, I decided to try.

My Uncle, Howard V. Pugh, Jr. commonly called Jack is buried in Manila. I am assuming that he was on the Bataan Death March as all the info, which is limited, points to this conclusion. He apparently died at Camp Cabanatuan..however there was some info that stated Camp O'Donnell....

He died many, many years before I was born and I know my father and his family missed Uncle Jack for the remainder of their lives. They too have all passed on and I now have a son serving in the U.S. Army, the legacy continues.

Is there any way to find out more info or perhaps, and this is a stretch that someone out there might have stories or remember him?

Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you.
