The Bataan Death March Memorial in Las Cruces, New Mex., features American and Filipino Soldiers supporting each other during the march. Footprints leading to and from the statue "look back to what has passed, down to what is present and ahead to what might be," according to notes by the sculptor, Kelley Hestir. "The footprints are symbolic of the many soldiers who began the march and the few who finished. The impressions were made from the feet of those who survived," Hestir said.
