Six WKU Army ROTC cadets participated in the 26th annual Bataan Memorial Death March on March 22 at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.

The Bataan Memorial Death March is a challenging march through the high desert terrain of White Sands Missile Range, conducted in honor of the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health and, in many cases, their lives.

WKU ROTC participants in the 26.2-mile march were Kelsey McArthur of Saint Peters, Missouri, who finished ninth overall in the female division nationwide; Austin Drexler of Bowling Green; Michael Cunningham of Louisville; Jacob Marsh of Cynthiana; Roland Haun of Hodgenville; and Michael Sawyer of Summer Shade.

SFC Andrew Black and MAJ Stephan Walters traveled with the cadets.
