Default Vj-day

August 14 1945..........on this day 69 years ago WWII ended.

A salute to the WWII vets still alive and a moment of remembrance for those that have passed.

A special moment of remembrance for those who made the ultimate sacrifice .

agree there. Thanks for posting.

I enjoyed meeting an honor flight back from a group of WWII vets making a trip to DC. When they got off the plane they impressed me even yet.

God Bless them all, those gone and those remaining.

From the poster of the video: "My Dad (USN) shot this beautiful color Kodachrome 16mm film footage before, during and after VJ Day, August 14, 1945, in Hawaii.

My Dad's rude introduction to WWII took place on the morning of December 7, 1941 when, eight minutes before enemy bombs rained down on Pearl Harbor, he was literally bombed out of his bunk at Oahu's Kaneohe Naval Air Station by Japanese fighter planes.

Following the passing of my Mom and Dad I came into possession of this spectacular 1945 film footage of VJ Day celebrations in Honolulu."

Thanks for the posting Douglas. I remember the day but I'm sorry to say I have since forgotten the date. Thanks again for the reminder.
