    On Kiska Island, after Allied troops had landed, this grave marker was discovered in a small graveyard amid the bombed-out ruins in August of 1943. The marker was made and placed by members of the occupying Japanese Army, 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”

Japanese pilot. The Japanese were known as very ferocious, brutal and ruthless military fighters.

Stories like this need to be told more often. Found on Shorpy among the comments below photo at Entitled "Other side of the story.". Widens our view of the bombing of Pearl Harbor from the pilots' experience. The pilots had no idea they were performing a sneak attack until afterward, and even then, if any of them had a problem with it, they were given veiled threats. Very interesting. I'm not surprised. Our history books never give us the total 'real' facts.
