                  Japan’s WW II surrender recalled

                  Today in Hawaii two American flags look down upon the services aboard the Battleship Missouri. The flags will be taken down and shipped to Oxford when the anniversary is over. The two flags are from the granddaughters of Robert E. Roy, step-father of Oxford resident Brian Pray.
                  Roy was aboard U.S.S. Missouri during the most important year of the ship from 1944 to 1945 traveling from Iwo Jima to the Okinawa invasion and Sixty Five Days of Hell to being in Japanese water space while the bombs came down to the surrender of the Japanese fleet on his vessel. And while there, he wrote.
                  He kept daily logs and memories of the chilling experiences, often noting major tragedies in only a sentence or two, not realizing just yet what the toll would be for the world.
