VJ Day in Hawaii

*** Remember our troops and vets in any way you can, ’cause all of them paid some, and some of them paid all !!

 

Great video of a Spontaneous Victory Parade in Honolulu in 1945..

Take a look at this absolutely fabulous video! Notice the cars and jeeps, youth. The guys in khaki or gray shirts and black ties are Navy officers or chiefs. The rest are Army or Marine. How young they all were to do what they did.

This guy really captured a moment in history! (You can listen to Jimmy Durante singing “I’ll be Seeing You” in the  background, too)

Check out the color fidelity. It’s not bad for 1945. Nothing will ever compare with Kodachrome film.
