Once a Soldier…


On the photo above you can see a soldier of the Japanese Imperial Army, Hiroo Onoda (on the right) and his good friend Norio Suzuki. Hiroo Onoda was a Japanese officer who stayed at his post in a jungle of some island in the Philippines for 29 years. There was a mistake, and his unit was ordered to guard that post until the command says otherwise. Well, command forgot about them, and no one ever told them about the end of the WW2. Onoda’s friends all died from starvation and other causes, but he remained and survived solely by eating bananas and coconuts. One day Norio Suzuki went to him and became his friend. He tried to explain him everything about the end of the war, and yet, Hiroo refused to believe. That is why Norio had to travel to Japan and find Hiroo’s former commanding officer, who came to the jungle and relieved him of his duty. He finally surrendered in 1974.
