Albany, N.Y. -- [cached]

Dr. John Browe of Troy, who was taken as a POW at Bataan on April 9, 1942, and remained a prisoner for more than three years, delivered a solemn and halting 20-minute keynote speech in which he detailed his military experiences.

Browe recalled a Japanese commander's first words at the time of his capture: "You think you are the lucky ones.Your comrades died at Bataan.Well, they were the lucky ones."
"I think he was right," said Browe, who was a medical corps first lieutenant for the Army Reserve.
The speech was an uncharacteristically personal one for Browe, according to Lt.Gov.
"It's a tribute to him and his humility that he never wore his honor on his sleeve," Donohue said, calling Browe "low-key, humble and community-oriented."
Browe said he has been "on the sick list since September," and used a walker to get to and from the speaking podium.
Browe, a medical doctor, was spared the brutal 65-mile Bataan death march that killed thousands of Allied soldiers in 1942.He dedicated the first 10 minutes of his address on Friday to honoring the late Richard "Dick" Gordon of Schenectady, who survived the Bataan march.
Perkins became a carpenter and raised a family; Browe became director of the state Bureau of Nutrition at the state Health Department; and Edwards, remarkably, went on to fight in Korea and Vietnam.

Dr. John H. Browe was a prisoner of war for three years.
In 1941, he was an intern at Municipal Hospital in Hartford when he was ordered to active duty in the Army as a first lieutenant.
Browe arrived in the Philippines that fall, and eventually was assigned to a hospital on Bataan where he evacuated the sick and wounded of the 31st Infantry.
In a 2004 Times Union interview, Browe said a lack of supplies may have played a role in the defeats suffered by the Americans and Filipinos at Bataan and Corregidor after Pearl Harbor was attacked.
He was working in a field hospital when the Japanese took him prisoner on Bataan in April 1942.He avoided the infamous death march but saw what he said were brutal conditions in prison camps.Browe said he could not help his fellow POWs who were dying, "because we had nothing."
He was liberated in September 1945 and left the Army as a major, having received the Philippine Defense Medal, the American Defense Ribbon and numerous other ribbons and badges.
After the war, Browe was a research associate and clinical director of a nutrition unit at the University of Vermont.In 1950, he received a degree from Columbia University School of Public Health and Administrative Medicine.
He retired from the state Health Department, where he had been director of the Bureau of Nutrition, Division of Epidemiology and Preventive Health Services from 1950 to 1977.
Browe also was a consultant to the federal government and participated in nutrition surveys in Iran, Chile and Venezuela.
He taught courses at Albany Medical and Skidmore colleges as well as with the Albany Regional Medical Program.
Browe was born in Burlington, Vt. on Nov. 17, 1915.
