Japanese Prison Camp

STORY BY: Mike McGee
YEAR: 1945

Mike continues Mel's story about his father, who was held in a Japanese POW camp in World War 2. He was very young when imprisoned, so he survived quite well, and became a successful businessman after the war was over. He later did business with Japan, and hosted Japanese students in his house. His biggest legacy to his son was not to hold a grudge. Thanks for sharing, Mike.
