Tom’s Story

Posted on 07 May 2009


In August, 1945, I was somewhere in the Pacific Ocean heading for the Invasion of Japan when the ship’s Captain announced the Japanese surrender.


Instead of invading Japan, I became a part of the first Occupation Forces to secure and occupy the islands of Japan in October, 1945 – thanks to the Atomic Bomb.

    I just want to say thank you because I don’t think everyone understands how important all our Veterans/Active Military men and women are. They give us the freedom we have today and for that I want to say thank you!! Very proud to have a Man like you on my side! ;o)
