I like it. Good for you. I met one of the Enola Gay’s crew at an Air Show once about 20 years ago and had to stand in line to shake his hand.
My dad was in charge of a section of Tokyo at the very beginning of the occupation and most of the Japanese welcomed the Americans.
Paul Tibbetts and his crew were heroes,and should be honored as such. They saved millions of lives, American AND Japanese.
FWIW -- My Dad said his unit (33rd Infantry) landed, was welcomed by childred with flowers, and treated well by the Japanese.
Some months later they rotated back stateside, replaced by another American unit which had not fought in the war. Those later Americans were more arrogant and not as well accepted by the Japanese, according to my Dad.
