A Day That WILL Live in Fame...

Post  News Hawk on Wed Aug 14, 2013 6:21 am

Today is the anniversary of V-J Day. Somebody start a thread over at FATP. Please...
 
The FATP Webmaster closed the equivalent thread on D-Day, but thought it was important-enough to leave up for several days of comments.

There's a video of celebrations in Honolulu from Japan's surrendering. I'd like to share it with a larger audience.
 
BTW:
Did you know the Emperor of Japan recorded his announcement of surrender at his palace, because he didn't think he could get through with it LIVE!
 
(And then. the US started buying tape recorders made in Japan!)

Why does Times Square get all the credit on V-J Day?

How about the town that got bombed out of commission in Dec, 1941?

Celebration, home-movie style:
