Ray’s sharp memory tells the story of our starvation and suffering as Japanese POWs. Our friendship is one reason we did survive by helping each other, especially on the “Hell Ships” from Mindanao to Japan, a horrific journey of ninety-two days. Ours was not to reason why – ours was to do or die.Bob Dowding, Japanese POWAuthor: A few Survived.I’ve known Ray and George Heimbuch since 1941, while assigned to the 5th Air Base Group. This relationship has lasted to today. It was interrupted in May 1942 when the unit was surrendered to Japanese forces in the Philippines. We shared similar experiences in POW camps until our liberation 1945. Afterward we stayed in the Air Force, got married, and raised families. At Survivor Reunions we share experiences, good and bad. Memories fade, but the tales get better. May our memories of the footlocker fifth remain with us forever.Walt Regehr, another survivor!
