This picture has nothing to do with this really...just needed an image.

Most of you are not old enough to remember this...but I do...and there may be HISTORY BUFFS out there that would love seeing this. and if you've not seen this one, it's worthy of your attention...
Amazing that we can still view it now.
Historical Footage: Japanese Surrender Signing Aboard Battleship Missouri Sunday Sept. 2, 1945.
A very important piece of history.
Most people have seen still photos of the event but have not seen the newsreel of it.
A film of the actual ceremony of the Japanese signing their surrender ending the Second World War. ( WW II )
General Douglas MacArthur was the Supreme Commander of our armed forces and in charge of the signing ceremony.

Terry, it does take someone really interested in HISTORY to appreciate HOW important this was. I had two Uncles who fought in WW II.
And we were fortunate to have them return in one piece.
