Talk About Persistence

Two WWII era Japanese soldiers were discovered in the pacific.

Japanese officials arrived on the Philippines island of Mindanao on Friday to unravel the mystery behind two aging men believed to be former imperial army soldiers who have lived in the mountains since the end of World War II.

The two men, who could be Yoshio Yamakawa, 87, and Tsuzuki Nakauchi, 85, both members of the 30th Division of the Imperial Japanese Army, were carrying several articles that indicated they were former soldiers, officials said, without elaborating.

And we have people griping about spending four months in Iraq, these guys were on station for sixty fricken years!
