Today is a grim anniversary in our family.
Dean Takahashi

Thanks for sharing Dean , we all have our grudges to bare , my father was a Japanese prisoner of war for 4 years in Changi. Jail he was British and not even in the forces at the time he was too young to serve but not too young to work in the navy, his ship was bombed and he was captured and treated like a dog , diseased and unfed for all those years, no similarity to the American Japanese induction camps . It takes all kinds to turn the circle of life, be thankful a of the generations that have not been involved in a world war , be thankful of the forces that are set in place to stop the next world war , by the way I am a British subject that is now Canadian , so my thoughts are not biased American , they are from the outside .
