Ray Makepeace was a hero. He was a POW for three years, was forced to work for the Japanese and then was sent to Japan on a ship where a third of the men died to work in a lead mine. I think he can say whatever he wants about dropping the atomic bomb, and he certainly has more authority than you.

I wrote the above comment when I first read this page, and now I have something to add. You can debate endlessly the merits of dropping the bomb; on the one hand it killed many thousands of people, on the other it ended the war, but you can not debate the debt we owe to our veterans including Ray Makepeace. I am related to him, and I also happen to be related to Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the Enola Gay, both deceased. They both sacrificed years of their lives in service of this country, and after going through what they did, I trust their judgement that it was the right thing to do.
