Lester Tenney's Interview

Lester Tenney's Interview

Lester Tenney served in the Phillipines during World War II and was captured at Bataan by the Japanese. He was a prisoner on the Bataan Death March, and forced to labor for a Japanese company. Many years after the war ended, he wrote "My Hitch in Hell" about the Death March, and worked to reconcile veterans and the Japanese community.
