Is it getting too late for apologies?


Is it getting too late for apologies?

by Robert Schneider

Dear President G.W. Bush:

This concerns my attempts to get an apology from Japan. It appears that Congress is closed to mail ( both in and out ) on the subject of  “An Apology from Japan “.  I was expecting to  receive assistance from a large, vet. org. but it went silent  when the subject was” Apology” ; the shades of Congress. 

As a result, the program is temporarily out of business.  My guess is that  someone realized that it would be inappropriate  for Congress to debate the matter of getting an apology  since we have supported  Japan for the position of a permanent member of the UN Security Council. In case the point is missed, we have supported Japan who has not apologized……… 


In other words, we are helping Japan and ignoring  Americans . It’s been 60 years that vets and their families have been overlooked and it appears to be happening again. In my opinion it is getting late so people who lived through WW-II should be remembered now with an apology from Japan. It’s almost too late to postpone it any longer.

Obviously, I can’t see the broader  picture but what I  see worries me. It’s been 60 years; we veterans can’t wait much longer.

       Respectfully submitted,
