    The remains of Army Pvt. Leroy M. Slenker, a Soldier killed during World War II, will be interred July 12 in Dixon, California. Slenker was a member of the 75th Ordnance Depot Company when Japanese forces invaded the Philippine Islands in December 1941. He was among thousands of U.S. and Filipino service members captured and interned at Prisoner of War camps when U.S. forces in Bataan fell to Japanese forces. Slenker was subjected to the 65-mile Bataan Death March and died a POW Nov. 15, 1942.
