Pickering is planning to participate in the Bataan Memorial Death March at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., regarded by Marathon Guide as one of the top 30 marathons in the U.S. He will walk the course with his 75-year-old father. But the 20th annual historical event will be more than a recognition of the determination and fortitude of World War II veterans who defended the Philippine Islands, were forced to surrender to the Japanese and then were marched on a brutal 70-mile trek through rough jungle terrain and tropical heat to prison camps. For Pickering, it will also be a reminder of what one college ROTC student can do with the support of his unit and his determination to make a difference. Pickering, now a product manager with Infrared Countermeasures, PEO-Intelligence Electronic Warfare and Sensors, at Redstone Arsenal, started the Bataan Memorial Death March while an ROTC student at New Mexico State University. Aca,!A"I was a senior and the corps commander of ROTC. I needed one more credit hour to complete my degree.
