On This Day

Japan formally surrendered to the allies on September 2 1945, bringing an official end to World War II and hostilities in the Pacific. The surrender ceremony took place aboard the USS Missouri.

I like this, from Vice President Mike Pence:

On this day 75 years ago, World War II officially ended & today we honor the millions of Americans who served this Nation from the battlefield to factories across the Country. We will never forget the courage, strength, innovation & sacrifice of America’s Greatest Generation.

Pray we don't have another war in the Pacific.

God bless,

The whole operation was designed to humiliate the Japanese. Maybe Dougout Doug's best move of the war.

A great day for the free world!

They certainly deserved it, WSF. The rising sun didn't look so bright at that moment in time.

Momentous, AOW.
