I have nothing but admiration for Mr. Odona. He was cut off from his command, and seriously did not know the war was over. Its's tragic that people suffered from his mistake. And it's also tragic that he lost 30 years of his life. His loyalty and dedication to his country that we should all learn something from. I'm American, my father fought in the Pacific . I remember his having nothing but respect for Mr. Onoda. Just yesterday I lost my uncle. He was in his nineties, too. My uncle John worked on the atomic bomb in Oak Ridge Tennessee. He later went to Los Alamos and setteled at the lab in Livermore, Ca. We were killing each other then. But both of these fine men gave their all for their Countries. I admire the fighting spirit of Mr. Onoda and the way he lived when his ordeal was over. May he rest in peace.
