Mel proudly served time in the Army after being drafted in the 50's. On his off time he surveyed sites such as this in Japan.

Yes I am sure there was a lot to see, remnants of the war were still there in the 1950's. There are somebenefits to the uniform, one is NOT a benefit, being away from the one(s) you love.
