Bataan Memorial Death March

We are the Montana State Tacticians Club and We Need Your Help

 

You have the opportunity to support a group of students who want to represent MSU at the Bataan Memorial Death March! This event helps our club build leadership skills by managing logistics, creating and executing plans, and it teaches us how to persevere through challenges.

 

BUT we can't get there without your financial support!

 

Help us pound sand in honor of the brave men lost during the Bataan Death March. We will never know what these soldiers went through, 

but we can make sure they are never forgotten.

 

Your support will provide the financial backing to accomplish the following:

  1. Registration fees
  2. Transportation rental
  3. Fuel for round trip
  4. Lodging
  5. Food
  6. Any other unexpected needs on our 2,578 mile trip to White Sands Missile Base and back



More about the Club: The Montana State Tactician Club was born from ROTC cadets who wanted more. 

Stepping outside the ROTC program they created a student organization to help build more effective future leaders from any major or discipline.

 

More about the event: The Bataan Memorial Death March is a grueling 26-mile ruck through the desert on the White Sands Missile Base in New Mexico. It is a way for soldiers and citizens alike to honor the valiant men who sacrificed everything during WWII on the Bataan peninsula.
