Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ralph Herold will never forget the rubble that was left of the Japanese cities of Kobe and Osaka at the end of World War II. Nor will he forget the faces of an apprehensive Japanese people, unsure of what to expect from the incoming U.S. Army in November of 1945. Leaflets distributed by the Japanese government warned them that the Americans were "rapists and terrible people," Herold said. "The people of Japan were in a state of shock," Herold said.
