Today in History, January 24, 1972:
28 years after the end of WWII, Shoichi Yokoi, Japanese Army Sergeant, was discovered hiding on Guam, living as a survivalist, still awaiting the return of the Imperial Japanese Army…completely unaware that the war had ended in 1945. He was considered a hero in Japan after his repatriation.
