I knows this strays from subject.here slightly,but I was stationed at misawa airbase.for year and half 81-82. I was naive And at times was closed.minded. I would like to thank Japan for treating me so nice and am grateful that japan survived one lost war to become.such an industrial and innovative nation.I pray that USA and japan will use what talent.is available to keep improving the world
I was extremely heartbroken of tsunami in spring 2011 but I know japan is very resilient and will.survive. I pray that god will bless japan and USA and other peaceful nations to keep mankind aware that past mistakes can be overcome thank u japan for treating me and others who respect your country to triumph and rebuild from ashes to become such a kind nation!
