US wartime pilot: How I grew to love Japan

World War II on August 14, 1945. The day the war ended, I flew the final combat mission of World War II. On that mission, my wing-man , Phillip Schlamberg, was the last man killed in a combat mission in WWII. Today is the 70th anniversary of the end WWII.

Please take a moment to honor the men and women who served our country, and still serve our country.

This is a BBC story of how I grew to love Japan.
