Taipei Times - US soldier enshrined at Hiroshima memorial

Update on the this post:
I found an article in a Japanese newspaper, The Chugoku Shinbun. The article, dated January 5, 2004, says that John Long's nephew's oldest son, Nathan Long, submitted a photo to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

Wonder why NHK reported this as news?
I looked up this story today on the Internet, because it had been reported on NHK radio this morning as I drove to work. I was interested to see what had been written about this in other places.

This story is far more complex and emotionally packed than I imagined from the NHK radio story.

Another question is why is this story from Taipei dated February, but the NHK story this morning reported it like it was something new.
