FILE - A photo released by the U.S. military in 1945, after it was captured from the Japanese, shows allied prisoners of war in the Philippines carrying their comrades in slings. In 2009, John E. Love, a Bataan Death March survivor , joined a campaign with other Bataan Death March survivors to change the caption of this photo, one of the most famous photos in AP's library about the march. The photo, thought to be of the Bataan Death March, actually was an Allied POW burial detail. Following a six-month investigation, The AP corrected the caption in 2010, 65 years after the image was first published. AP archivists confirmed Love's account of the burial detail at a prisoner-of-war camp in the weeks that followed the Death March. Love died Monday, March 17, 2014 after a long battle with cancer. He was 91. (AP Photo/U.S. Marine Corps)
