Army Pilot Who Flew Last Combat Mission in WWII Has Something IMPORTANT To Say To Our Generation

U.S. Army Capt. Jerry Yellin flew the last combat mission of WWII and saw his wingman become the last man killed in combat in that war. Now 70 years later, Yellin visited Iwo Jima for a commemoration of the end of the war and shared a piece of his incredible life story, what he learned from the world's biggest war, how America was united then behind one goal, and his words to our generation.

Yellin relates, "In 1988 my youngest son married the daughter of a Japanese kamikaze pilot, which took me from hatred to...love of family. I have three Japanese grandchildren. I'd like their contemporaries to know that...my grandchildren's grandparents served their countries with honor no matter what we were learned about the Japanese or what they learned about us. That war is an atrocity. That evil has to be wiped out. We are not what we believe — we are all human beings, exactly the same. And there's evil in the war today, and we have to fight that evil to make sure that there's freedom for free-loving people in our world."
