The End of the War . . .

For those who lived that never-to-be-forgotten moment of learning we had won the war, and the world really did have a future —- and for those who never had to experience it but are truly thankful to the men and women who made it possible —- this video is a must. By Richard Sullivan, this video is his father’s real-life recording of VJ Day celebrations in Honolulu, minutes after the announcement that Japan had surrendered. Watch it with a box of tissues.
