 PVT Israel Goldberg was born in Massachusetts, the son of Russian immigrants who served with the Hq Squadron, 24th Pursuit Gp, US Army Air Corps in the Philippines at the outbreak of WW2. When the Philippines was attacked by the Japanese, PVT Goldberg was then assigned to the Provisional Air Corps Infantry, an infantry unit of airmen retrained as Infantry soldiers who fought on the front lines in the defense of Battaan. When the Bataan forces were surrendered he was among those who endured the 65 mile Bataan Death March to the northern POW camps of O'Donnell and Cabanatuan. PVT Israel Goldberg died at the notorious Cabanatuan POW camp on 11 August 1942 and was buried in Common Grave 108 in the camp cemetery along with nine other POWs who died that day. His great niece, Liberty Phillips who runs the Non-Profit, Operation Meatball tells us his story of sacrifice and their family's determination to have him identified!
