Nagaski, Japan, a monument of the A bomb, upright showing where the bomb came from and where it hit, was there in the dead of winter, was in mama son house, the only heat was a hibachi in the middle of the floor I couldn't drink enough sake to stay warm and went back to the ship

I saw this statue Sunday night on a TV special about the atomic bomb. The damage that those two bombs created were unbelievable.

The damage that empire caused on our men and women beginning December 7, 1941 was far greater in my opinion. Many American families lives were shattered. I could say more but the internet is forever.

True, but it awoke a giant that stands atop the world today because of it.

Cool monument, I'd love to go to Japan.

Dad flew in the area two weeks after; 'said you could still smell it. He was a RO in a B24. I'm so glad he wanted to fly, even if he had to ride the radio seat. What our boys went through on the ground on all those South Pacific islands was I think as close to hell as you can get on this side.
