VJ Day in Kodachrome, August 14, 1945

VJ Day, Honolulu Hawaii, August 14, 1945 from Richard Sullivan on Vimeo.

Just a stunning clip of VJ Day in Honolulu, sixty five years (and one day) ago. As I watch it I keep wondering how many of the people in the film would have died in the invasion of Japan if the war had not ended when it did. Many thanks to Richard G. Williams, Jr. of the Old Virginia Blog for posting this.
