"No more RICE!" (U.S. Marine corporal Harold Thomas as Army aircraft began dropping rations and other supplies to men held at the POW camp in Niigata, Japan, in late August, 1945. Captured in Peking--now Beijing--China on the day Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, Thomas had been a prisoner of the Japanese for 45 months and weighed about 115 pounds when rescued by the war's end. A quote for Memorial Day.)
