From my grandmother's diary:
Everybody is excited- the war is over with Japan.
In short, the troops will soon be heading home. Even with the several months of relatively easy occupation duty, I would guess that suddenly the world changed for the better on that other August 14, 70 years ago. The days of the 10th Armored are numbered.
And no one could have been happier than the men of the 10th and their families.
