I was looking for information about a P-38 crash site on Attu island and went to the main site and found this story.

A Soldier's Flag
Home from Attu after 60 Years:

Its funny how a simple act can turn around into a 60 year story.

Beautiful story. I lived in Akita for nearly a year back in 1997 (working in a local hospital.) It's a brilliant place - very old, and still very Japanese (as opposed to say, Tokyo). It's also the poorest prefecture in the country, and still very agricultural.

I loved it... and I'm planning to go back there no matter how long it takes me to save up.
