Historical Marker Dedicated to Lt. Col. Frank S. Adamo, M.D.

This historical marker reads: "Lt. Col. Frank S. Adamo, M.D.: Bataan's Medical Hero. This distinguished native Tampan served with courage, honor and personal sacrifice as an army surgeon during World War II. He was captured and made a prisoner of war when the Japanese overran the Philippines. Afflicted with Beri-Beri and other diseases he performed heroically serving his comrades as doctor, friend and lifesaver. Dr. Adamo discovered a revolutionary method in the treatment of gangrene using hydrogen peroxide and saved thousands of gangrenous limbs. A grateful nation decorated him with the medal of the Legion of Merit. When he returned home he found that First Avenue, a major thoroughfare, had been named Frank S. Adamo Drive in his honor."
