Wartime Recollections
Click For EnlargementHis father, the chief of an area during the war became frustrated during the heavy fighting in the area, and all the foreign soldiers on their land and disrupting their lives. He dressed in his best tribal gear, and took his war spears and went to a road and hailed the nearest American Jeep, where he told the officer that he wanted the soldiers to leave. The officer told his sergeant to "get rid of him" and he was unceremoniously shot dead. After the war, there were many abandoned aircraft at the area airfields. And, he remembers how his mother warned the cchildren not to stray too far away because 'there might be Japanese soldiers waiting to get them.'
