The Last Man Off Bataan : A Virtual Exhibition of the Romulo Room

Today marks the 33rd anniversary in commemorating "Day of Valor" or known as "Araw Ng Kagitingan", a tribute to the unsung heroes of Bataan for showing their strong patriotism and undying heroism during World War II against the Japanese Imperial Army.
