    Interesting story. There were Japanese soldiers coming out of the jungle for several years after the war; I remember when this guy surrendered...but I also remember when the last Civil War Veteran died in 1956.
    Have wings, will travel.

    A fellow I knew told me stories about his experiences fighting the Japanese in the Philippines. He was a Captain in the Lightning Brigade. Told me he never forgave the Japanese for what was done to his fellow soldiers.
