TAKASAKI, Japan — A South Korea-based U.S. airman brought a World War II-era Japanese flag to a small city in Gunma prefecture Thursday to complete a family mission started after his grandfather died nearly two decades before.

Senior Master Sgt. Lowell Armstrong, 44, presented the signature-covered flag to the family of Masashi Ito, who was killed in the bloody Battle of Iwo Jima on March 17, 1945. https://www.stripes.com/news/s-korea-based-us-airman-returns-japanese-flag-taken-as-war-trophy-in-battle-of-iwo-jima-1.568610
