It has been 70 years since the United States dropped atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, effectively forcing an end to World War II.
Aug. 15, 1945, is the day that Japan surrendered and accepted the terms of the Potsdam Declaration. Sept. 2, 1945, is the official day as surrender known as V-J Day.
I would like to say thanks to the “greatest generation” on earth. My question to the Belleville News-Democrat is where is the coverage?
