On September 2, 1945, government and military officials from the Empire of Japan signed surrender documents in a ceremony aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, formally bringing the Pacific War and the hostilities of World War II to a close. Japanese Emperor Hirohito had announced Japan’s unconditional surrender 18 days earlier on August 15, 1945. To mark the 75th anniversary, the Friends of the National World War II Memorial hosted an online commemorative program, including remarks by Joint Chiefs of Staff chair Gen. Mark Milley and former NBC News anchor and author Tom Brokaw. close
