  • We visited the museum on our way home from Palm Springs to Iowa. My father's best friend in POW camp at Funatsu, Japan was a man from Deming, NM named Jesus (Jimmy) Gutierrez and one of the things on my bucket list was to honor Jimmy and the rest of the New Mexico National Guard members who fought and died or wound up in POW camps (there were a lot of them as several NMNG units were in the Philippines). The host at the museum was a super nice gentleman who treated us like royalty. A very nice small museum of which a good percentage was devoted to the Guardsmen who fought in the Philippine Islands and specifically on Bataan and Corregidor. My father was a soldier in Battery Chicago, 60th Coast Artillery (Anti-Aircraft) on Corregidor and was in Japanese prison camps at Cabanatuan, Bilibid, Palawan and Nagoya Camp No. 3 at Funatsu, Japan.
