A group of American World War II Veterans met up with Japanese World War II Veterans in Hiroshima in April. The men gathered together to pay respects by visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Then they played softball.
Most of those who participated were in their 80s. They played their game at an elementary school where some 400 children died during the bombing of Hiroshima.
This was the second time the group got together for a softball game. The last time they met in Hawaii in 2007.
