Do everything you can so they don’t forget Bataan
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) March 24, 2016
Margaret Garcia’s new book, Tell Me Another War Story - The Life of Evans Garcia: Courageous Soldier, American Hero, My Dad, ($16.99, paperback, 9781498465731; $8.99, e-book, 9781498465748) was written to share a war hero’s legacy, through a daughter’s experience. Readers will be captivated by the life and legacy of Evans Garcia, born in Doña Ana, New Mexico, who fought with the New Mexico National Guard’s 200th Coast Artillery (AA) in the Philippines during WWII. The book demonstrates how a man with a rural upbringing developed solid character and kept his faith to survive the horrors of war against the Japanese and the brutality of prisoner of war status during three-and-a-half years of captivity. According to the author, the story of Bataan and the men who were the first to fire on the enemy in WWII has not been told as it needs to be, and the atrocities of the Bataan Death March and the POWs in the Philippines and Japan are forgotten in history books. This significant part of WWII deserves to be given its proper place in history.
Author, Margaret Garcia, listened to and wrote down her father’s war stories for years. Initially, she did not realize the importance of them, but at one point, was inspired to pull her notes together and write his story.
“Dad’s mantra to me was, ‘Do everything you can so they don’t forget Bataan,’’’ states the author. “That was one of my goals in writing this book, and it took me on an unexpected and unforgettable journey that has made my life richer.”
Margaret lives in Albuquerque with her cat, Tyson.
