Special Operations Association Reunion (SOAR) XLIV

 At Special Operations Association Reunion (SOAR) XLIV, we plan to honor all those who would have been eligible to join the Special Operations Association had they returned home. That is, all those from our eligible units who remain missing and unaccounted-for or killed in action/body not recovered. We have identified 139 individuals in those categories.

On Wednesday morning, 21 October 2020, we plan to hold a Memorial Breakfast for our brothers who remain unreturned veterans.


Sgt. Bowe Berghahl, POW in Afghanistan since June 30, 2009.  Bring him home.


The Bataan Death March April 10, 1942

The Bataan Death March was the forcible transfer, by the Imperial Japanese Army, of 76,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war after the three-month Battle of Bataan in the Philippines during World War II, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of prisoners.  The 128 km (80 mi) march was characterized by wide-ranging physical abuse and murder, and resulted in very high fatalities inflicted upon prisoners and civilians alike by the Japanese Army, and was later judged by an Allied military commission to be a Japanese war crime.
