I know that my dad and the rest of the 94th ID was in the process of getting ready to head to the Pacific theater when they got word of Hiroshima. According to what my dad told me-on many occassions-there wasn't one member of his division that had a problem with the dropping of the bomb. As far as I can tell, these guys would have elected Tibbits President if he'd wanted it.

I remember a teacher in elementary school who said when word got out to the ships that the bomb was dropped, the soldiers danced.

Hubby's Dad was scheduled to be shipped over in November of that year. He and all the men who were scheduled to be sent had no illusions about what would happen when they arrived on the Japanese mainland. They knew that not only would many of THEM be killed, but many civilians would be, as well.
