Shimada Yoshikuni, a minister from the Onomichi Yoshiwa Dendosho branch of the United Church of Christ in Japan, recites a prayer during a memorial for POWs from Mukaishima POW Sub-Camp No. 4 in Onomichi, Japan, April 15, 2013. The location was once the sight of the camp. “It is important for us to continue to remember the men and women from all nations who fought in the great conflict,” said Col. James C. Stewart, Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni commanding officer. “This memorial will stand as a reminder of their tremendous sacrifice and our desire for world peace. Today, Japan and the United States and the United Kingdom form the strongest and most important security alliance in the world.”
