Four Brothers, Two Sides
If you didn't already see this yesterday, this CNN piece about four brothers and their experiences in World War II is highly worth reading. All of them grew up in the US as part of a large Japanese-American family, but several years before the war the father and younger children moved back to Japan. The oldest two brothers fought for the US in the Pacific theater, and the youngest two were drafted into the Japanese military. They re-united after the way, and one of the younger brothers later went on to fight for the US in Korea.
