Remaining WW2 Veterans Will Never See Closure


Dear Mr. President,

I  expect to drop my endeavor to get an apology from Japan.

Recently I suggested to you that the United States FORGIVE Japan instead because an apology approach has not worked.

I am considering dropping my effort because in about ¾ years, I have received no replies from your office or the Congress of the United States; and follow-up letters were useless too.

I also understand that the VFW was asked not to help me. I do not understand the reason for the policy but I cannot make any progress since I’ve been literally locked out.

Americans who lived through the war years need an opportunity for closure and veterans are due to be honored. The population of people in this group is falling rapidly so it is difficult to understand why we are resisting FORGIVING Japan now unless there is some reason for protecting Japan (and the United States ) from a debate in Congress…


I have said enough negative things about that possibility to avoid repeating them.

Mr. President, should an opportunity arise where I might do some good, I plan to consider reactivating my endeavor. I feel that my freedom of speech has been restricted; I simply
wanted our Congress to debate the matter and issue a ruling which is the American way.

I am a veteran P.T. Boat Officer, WW-II, Philippine Theater. I want the younger generations to know that the United States won the war and preserve their heritage and future for them. I want foreign text books to represent the truth honestly. If the past is a good indicator, you
probably won’t get this letter to read.

Respectfully submitted,

Robert W. Schneider
