Japanese vets step back into history

Japanese World War II veterans gaze upon the site where Japan's 10th Army surrendered at the end of the war. Twenty-eight members of the Japan Disabled Veterans Association visited two of Kadena's historic sites Sept. 30. (Right) Shinzou Kaji, 94, from Miyazaki Prefecture was recovering in a field hospital in Burma when he heard his country had surrendered to the United States in August 1945. The former senior NCO in the Japanese Imperial Army said his enemy has become a key ally over time and now the two countries promote peace and stability in Asia. (Air Force/Tech. Sgt. Jason Lake)
