    Quite a number landed in Canada. Japan also shelled a lighthouse in Canada. there was 49,000 US troops in Prince Rupert for awhile, one cove is named Sourdough cove after them.

    That's not surprising. Look up how many ships were sunk by the German's within eyesight of the East coast! They used the lights of our cities as back light to spot shipping. Didn't hear much about the Japanese doing much of that though.

    Since I was born in 73 I'm obviously not a WWII vet, but this is very interesting.

    Lately I have been amazed at the level in which the World involves thier children in preparing for war. Did we do that back then as well or are we different in this aspect with all the other ways we are different?
