Survivors mark 75th anniversary of world's 1st nuke attack

  Survivors mark 75th anniversary of world's 1st nuke attack HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) — The dwindling witnesses to the world’s first atomic bombing marked its 75th anniversary Thursday, with the mayor and others noting the Japanese government's refusal to sign a nuclear weapons ban treaty, highlighting its hypocrisy. Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui urged world leaders to more seriously commit to nuclear disarmament, pointing out Japan’s failures. “I ask the Japanese government to heed the appeal of the (bombing survivors) to sign, ratify and become a party to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons,” Matsui said.

A grim anniversary was commemorated this week. 25 years ago, thousands of Muslims were killed in the Srebrenica massacre during the Bosnian War. Mike Drolet reports on the fate of a survivor who immigrated to Canada, and why some believe justice still hasn't been served.

Today marks the grim anniversary of the death of Reena Virk. "If you have issues there is help available there is a right channel they can deal with their issues rather than using the fist." Place based healing.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Jason Dominguez remembers vividly his last conversation with David Kreuter, as they were doing an overnight security watch from a rooftop in western Iraq.

Marine Cpl. Dominguez and Sgt. Kreuter usually joked around, but this night 15 years ago was different. Kreuter proudly showed him a photo of his 7-week-old son. “Wow, you're a father!” Dominguez exclaimed.

“Yeah, I am,” replied Kreuter, 26, who then talked excitedly about getting to see and hold baby Christian for the first time. “His priorities in life had just shifted," recalled Dominguez, who, like the rest of the Lima (pronounced LEE'-muh) Company Marines, also looked forward to the end of their tour of duty in a couple more months.

“Some stuff is seared into your brain and some of it is just fuzzy,” said Hillberg, 39.

Seared in: Aug. 3. Hillberg's head and shoulders were out of his amphibious assault vehicle as the lance corporal served as gunner for the second vehicle in the convoy, just ahead of the one hit by the bomb.

“When it blew, it shook everything,” he said. “I remember looking back and it flipped it and split it in a way that with all the dust and everything, the shape looked normal. I looked at my buddy and said ‘Thank God, they missed.’"

Dominguez was two vehicles back from the exploded one.

“You saw the orange ball of fire and you just knew,” Dominguez said.

It was the final blow of a deadly week in that area: Two Lima Company Marines also were killed while “clearing” houses of any possible insurgents, and six Marine snipers were lost when their outposts were overrun by insurgents.

Lima Marines who witnessed the bombing were invited by their commanders to return to their base and meet with counselors, Hillberg said. They declined, some saying the World War II Marines their company traces roots to wouldn't have left the battle on Iwo Jima.

One day when they were clearing houses, Hillberg suddenly couldn't go into the next one. He told his team leader, who directed him to take cover nearby. Soon, tears were rolling down from behind his sunglasses.

A US Marine is dead and 8 service members are missing after an amphibious assault vehicle sank off the coast of California

  A US Marine is dead and 8 service members are missing after an amphibious assault vehicle sank off the coast of California The US Marine Corps said the accident took place during a routine training exercise near the island of San Clemente."1 Marine has died, 8 service members remain missing and 2 were injured after an AAV mishap July 30 off the coast of Southern California," the I Marine Expeditionary Force tweeted early Friday, adding that all of the Marines in the vehicle were assigned to the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit.

“I was just bawling,” Hillberg said. “I cried it out ... then we just pushed on.”

Although the reunion is canceled, Kreuter's parents were recently able to host an annual golf tournament that benefits a memorial scholarship fund. It was iffy for a while, especially before the state reversed an order closing golf courses.

Ken Kreuter said they've raised more than $125,000 through the tournament that grew out of an annual pancake breakfast in David's honor. They award $1,000 scholarships to Cincinnati-area students.

His wife, Pat Murray, helps keep up a network of the Marines' survivors, although Kreuter said they have lost touch with some. Some others also have memorials and benefits in their children's names, and a traveling tribute exhibit was created more than a decade ago.

“The saddest thing," Pat said a few days ago, "is no new memories have been created with David. That really hurts.”

Dominguez, a father of two children, has his rituals this time of year. On July 28, he visited the grave of Columbus-area native Cpl. Andre Williams, one of two Lima Marines killed that day in 2005 while clearing houses. As he always does, he left a coin for Williams.

On Aug. 3, he usually meets up with other survivors and family members, winding up at a Waffle House to trade stories and memories. Because of pandemic restrictions and concerns, he's not sure how many people will participate this year.

“You celebrate the time you had with them,” Dominguez said of the slain Marines. “You tell your kids about it. You think about the choices you have, choices to live a life that is worthy of their sacrifice."
