Posted in: Survivor recalls life in internment camp for Japanese-Americans See in context

On Bainbridge Island in Washington State, USA, two men became partners and co-founded a grocery store called Town and Country Market. One man was of European origin, and the other of Japanese ancestry. The war came, and the Japanese family was intered. The Caucasian man kept the store going. After the war the Japanese man and his family returned home. He was immediately welcomed back into the business. The store has done well, and has opened several profitable branches. The families are close and wealthy. The Japanese family built a second swimming pool in the town of Winslow upgrading the facility, and making it more accommodating to the very young and the old. This is just one way they have helped. Oh, and I can buy sushi in the store made on the spot by a Japanese lady!

All one needs to do is visit the war museum in Okinawa and view the thousands of names of the dead engraved in the winding black granite wall to project how an invasion would have turned out. Horrible, brutal yet honest assessment.
