Peter B. Marshall, POW/MIA, Veteran
USN – WWII
Prescott, Arizona – 02-21-21
ABOUT THE MISSION:
Peter honorably served in the US Navy for four years during WWII. The day after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor they bombed the Marine barracks on Guam, taking 300 Navy Sailors and Marines prisoner (including 19 year old Peter), and transported them to work camps in Japan. Peter remained a POW for 1,368 days – almost four years – before he was repatriated. During his captivity he developed a lung infection. After his release, he had a portion of his lung removed at a Navy hospital due to tuberculosis, ending his Navy career. In 1950, he received $1 for every day in captivity. In 1953, he received an additional $1.50 per day. Peter is currently at the Prescott VA. The PGR will have a drive-by the VA CLC to commemorate his 100th birthday (which is on the day of the mission) and for a special presentation to Peter by the Prescott VA.
It is our honor as we show respect and gratitude to this hero for his sacrifices made for this nation.
