Re: Pilot of Aircraft that dropped Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima

Ann, I was only 21 when I visited Hiroshima during one of our routine stop overs in Kure Japan this was during the Korean War. At the time I was with a group of other guys and yes it was an erie experience but I don't think I really appreciated the significance of what had taken place as much as I would today.?As to whether it was a good decision to drop the bomb and then a second one on Nagasaki, that will be something I think will be debated for evermore.
