Kaiten: The Japanese Suicide Sub Reconciliation Continues – Lyceum
March 21: Mike Mair Presents “Kaiten: The Japanese Suicide Sub Reconciliation Continues”
WWII ended 50 years earlier when a stunning discovery in 1995 led to a 25-year journey for Mike Mair of Platteville. John Mair, a U.S. Navy veteran, had never revealed to Mike and his siblings the horrific sinking of his ship USS Mississinewa (AO-59) on November 20, 1944. Mike interviewed nearly 300 U.S. and Japanese veterans, reviewed naval records, made scuba dives on Mississinewa while writing the book “Kaiten.” Mike gave a historic speech in Japan in 2019. Learn how the story will continue with global connections and a worldwide film in the making. $4 Per Lecture or $20 for all 7 Lyceum Lectures. Register Now!
