VJ Day, Honolulu Hawaii, August 14, 1945 from Richard Sullivan on Vimeo.

65 Years Ago my Dad shot this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki capturing spontaneous celebrations that broke out upon first hearing news of the Japanese surrender. Kodachrome 16mm film: God Bless Kodachrome, right? I was able to find an outfit (mymovietransfer.com) to do a much superior scan of this footage to what I had previously posted, so I re-did this film and replaced the older version There are more still images from this amazing day, in color, at www.discoveringhawaii.com


The above video clip is how our country once celebrated defeat of those who chose to attack us.  There was no groveling or apologies for defending our safety and honor.  I would also argue that a celebration of victory, for a well fought campaign, resulted in a universal respect for our nation.  Sadly today our own leaders denigrate the volunteer military for doing their duty in cleaning up the failed policy and politics of those same elected leaders.  With all due respect to all our veterans, I offer the following tribute in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.   Also,  Remember November!  A time to again honor our veterans AND to remove all embarrassing and traitorous politicians from office.

VJ Day in Honolulu

If you are at least 65 I am Sure,

You all saw the Sailor kissing on Broadway in New York ,

 but how many have seen this? And check out the color fidelity -

Nothing will ever compare with Kodachrome film.

 and click on --`VIDEO`-- it has sound.
