This would be HILARIOUS if it weren't so awful. Yang Kyoungjong was a Korean. In 1938, the Japanese made him fight in their army against the Soviets. Then the Soviets caught him, and made him serve in THEIR army against the Nazis. Then the NAZI's caught him and made him fight the Allies. THEN...the US caught him and thought he was Japanese, put him in a POW camp. When released, he emigrated to the US and lived in Illinois untill 1992.
