    Four years, twelve months and seventeen days of War and this day couldn't have come any sooner. As all of you know August 14, 1945, Japan surrenders unconditionally and the Second World War is finally over.

    The nurse in that pic just recently passed away.

    Though it was a global conflict and some lessons learned, sadly war goes on today. :salute:

    I heard of that news, very sad. Though the sailor in the photo is still a mystery.
