This grave marker was discovered by US troops on Kiska Island (Aleutians) in a small graveyard in August1943. The marker was made and placed by Japanese soldiers, after they had buried an American pilot who had crashed on the island. The marker reads: "Sleeping here, a brave air-hero who lost youth and happiness for his Mother land. July 25 - Nippon Army". A small gesture of humanity amid the Apocalypse ~
