The Cabanatuan American Memorial was erected by the survivors of the Bataan Death March and the prisoner of war camp at Cabanatuan in the Philippines during World War II. It is located at the site of the camp and honors those Americans and Filipinos who died during their internment. ABMC, recognizing the significance of this memorial, accepted responsibility for its operation and maintenance in 1989.
The Cabanatuan Memorial is about 4.5 miles northeast of Cabanatuan City, situated on the south side of Nueva Ecija-Aurora Road. It is 85 miles north of Manila.
