The Japan earthquake tsunami solidifies the bond between Japan & USA

During the week of 4 – 9 April, a radio talk show host by the name of Jeff Bolton from Dallas, Texas, station KLIF on the AM dial 570, is in Japan, the earthquake tsunami disaster region. Mr. Bolton is traveling with helicopter crews from the United States Marine Corps – USMC.

Daily Mr. Bolton shares heart-wrenching stories from the tragedy. Many illustrating the unselfishness, compassionate, and sense of community of the people in the area. He also interviews numerous Marines with their stories in the area.

In the future when a tragedy falls upon another nation, people, or culture, they will be expected to behave as the Japanese did. The people of Japan set the marker for unselfishness and cooperation in the face of unspeakable and unimaginable disaster. When the earthquake tsunami hit Japan, people around the world asked, “How come no looting?” Future disasters if people behave uncivilized as in the past, the question will be asked, “How come they did not behave like the Japanese did?”

In this video is a video clip of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force band and the United States Navy 7th Fleet band playing the “Kimigayo” the national anthem of Japan, and The Star Spangled Banner” the national anthem of the United States of America.
