Hiro Onada died in Tokyo on Jan. 16 of this year. You may not be familiar with his name, but many of you know his story. Onada was the last Japanese soldier to surrender after World War II. From 1944 to 1974 he hid out on a jungle island in the Philippines. All efforts to coax him out of hiding failed. He refused to believe the truth the war was over and Japan had lost. Because he believed wrongly, he behaved foolishly.
