Japanese WWII soldier found alive

His flanking maneuver took about sixty years. Going to have to work on that soldier.

A Japanese ex-soldier who disappeared after World War II and was officially declared dead in 2000 has turned up alive in Ukraine, officials say.

Living in the Ukraine and being dead is basically the same thing. Or so I hear.

Ishinosuke Uwano was serving with the Japanese Imperial Army in Russia's Sakhalin Island when the war ended. He lost contact with his family in 1958.

He wasn't lost, he escaped. No one stays missing THAT long without wanting to stay lost.

The 83-year-old has now reappeared, in Ukraine, where he is married and has a family, Japanese officials say.

That's why he disappeared. He fell in love. This is a love story. Warms the heart.

I still think it's call desertion
