On October 15, 2012, Temple University in Japan's Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies (ICAS) hosted the seven former POWs of Japan during their visit to Japan hosted by Japan's Foreign Ministry. This was the third visitation program for American former POWs, which includes an apology delivered personally by the Foreign Minister for their abuse and suffering. You can find detailed biographies of these men HERE.
For an excellent review of this trip to Japan see the US-Japan Dialogue on POWs.
