VJ Day Celebration Home Movie

Somebody sent this to me via forwarded email and most such emails are fairly useless but this one turned out to be a gem. I find this short home movie to be remarkably sentimental and haunting and beautiful. The period in American history right when the war ended into the few years following before the Cold War (World War Three in my book) intensified and cast a dark shadow across the cultural and political landscape has long fascinated me.
