At 90 years young, Harry Corre has seen his share of good times and bad, including more than three years as a prisoner of war during World War ll. He saw the horrors of war first hand as a young solider, captured during the Battle of Bataan in 1941. After managing to escape into the jungle and swim to safety, he was captured again when Corregidor fell, spent a year in the hospital and another year and a half working in dangerous conditions in a prison camp coal mine. When finally rescued, he weighed less than 100 pounds.
These days Harry offers his time and support to fellow veterans as a patient advocate in a local VA Medical Center.
