Some pics from Rising Sun. It’s the only way you can see what they saw.

I think we should remember the attack, the war and the men but as my father used to say when I asked him about the Japanese, “Son, they were my enemy, not yours.”

One cannot fault the Japanese aviators even when you find fault in their leaders. Still the best executed bad idea in history.
