Duplicates online comments, to keep track.

Times Archive Blog: Hiroshima and Nagasaki, still in the news

leave a comment »

Needs a quick edit: “Yanaguchi” (2nd paragraph) should be “Yamaguchi” the name of the local doctor once in Ronkonkoma, NY who made a house-call to save my fevered cousin back in the 1960s. I’ve read there were 12 American POW’s at Hiroshima when the bomb exploded.

The Emperor’s white samurai sword, surrendered at the end of the war, has been recently returned to the Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy Museum, on Long Island, NY, stolen in the 1970s and said to draw attention to veterans mistreatment, the “thief” wrote who died of cancer, whose representative left it there with the note. It was placed back on exhibit at the museum. I saw it at a yearly meeting of the US National Maritime Historical Society.

The first U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, in Kings Point, on Long Island, NY, it was officially commissioned by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
