Image result for vj day truman speech


The war was officially over. Aboard the USS Missouri, General MacArthur and the Japanese officials signed the conditions of surrender. It had been 3 1/2 long years since the bombing of Pearl Harbor and exactly 6 years since the start of the war. But now, it was over. In a speech to the American People, President Truman named September 2, 1945 to be V-J Day – the day of the formal surrender of Japan. He hoped that we would always remember that day of retribution. 

But do we?
