here's and no courage tennessee los alamos. new mexico and hanford washington just to produce to research how to make the bombs and make the materials and from which to make the bombs so this effort has been going on a long time ever since the beginning of the war and einstein wrote a letter for franklin roosevelt saying that it might be possible to make an atomic weapon so all this had been going on and we had started preparing to drop the atom bomb in the fall of one nine hundred forty four before we even had a bomb we were with we were if you were a poker player you'd say you're betting on the calm so that's what happened and then they had a test of that one of the first atomic bombs in. alamogordo new mexico on july sixteenth of one nine hundred forty five forty five years after that that
everything started getting hotter and everything of that type and we knew we were going to have a weapon there drop so then we had a paradigm we had already been preparing to drop it so if we don't know how to drive and by this time we never would the day before we had a briefing in the morning and then they told you to go back and get some sleep because you have to take off at two forty five am everything started two forty five and so then you went back and. to get some sleep and i would nobody slap how they expected so you're going out drop the first atomic bomb and then go get some sleep eight o'clock at night they came and got us finally and then took us over and gave us the final breakfast in a sort of business i call the final breakfast they call it the mission breakfast and then over to define a briefing where they gave you the latest model metro data folder where all the air sea rescue ships were and everything of that type any final things that they you
needed to know so then we finally finished all that we get on the airplane it took off every simple he went once he got up on the plane what was it like how are you feeling it was easy because everything went exactly according to plan there wasn't a surprise in a whole bunch and with what we had prepared for and had been expecting and everything of that type all this time you could see the city of you can see the coast of japan from a good two hundred miles away i mean maybe a hundred miles away you could see the city of hiroshima from fifty miles away so you just went in and turned on the bomb run and by this time was in the bombardiers answer and you said turned and waited for the drop when the drop came the plane surged because somebody lost ninety four hundred pounds and tempers took over manual control again and made the turn to get away from the bomb the biggest thing that we were concerned about was is this bomb going to work because this was
a bomb that had never been tested this was you know a uranium two thirty five bomb that had never been tested the one they tested was approved tony a bomb so it wasn't going to work or wasn't going to work and it took forty five seconds from the time the bomb left the airplane until they exploded everybody was sitting there time again some way shape or form i had a watch so i knew what the time was that other people were counting one thousand and one one thousand and two and so forth and. suddenly the bomb went off and you saw a bright flash of light in the airplane if you knew the thing at work and the only question then was why was i going to do it in the airplane so we were going away from it at this time we got putting distance between us and the bomb kept out up after a little very short time we got the first shock wave which is measured about three and a half g.'s you go up there in washington you know all these military people you know one of three g. is and everything of that type so does seem like much to
a fighter pilot but if you want to be twenty nine at thirty thousand feet seems like a hell of a job so when we turned around after you weren't sure we were going to my shock waves we turned around the look what had happened and the shock wave of the city of hiroshima was completely covered with smoke and dust and you could not you knew had tremendous amount of damage had been done underneath that cloud there and everything but you could not see what it was when they tested the first atomic bomb in new mexico as you mention robert oppenheimer his of course the mastermind behind the manhattan project i read a quote for have any said you know a few people cried it must first silent how did you feel when that bomb detonated and i was happy to work that's number one you know we had been in a long war we had been attacked by the japanese the japanese people were not nice people in those days my next door neighbor who was
a prisoner of war all the time has more stories about this to tell him i can tell but we had to but tahn death march the all the casualties we took on the solomons and the sort of thing that i wanted the policy of the united states government at that time was to subdue the nation of japan and i was willing to do anything i could do to help that out and that was. my policy also was to the country was trying to subdue japan and i was trying to do also to subdue japan let me make one comment here the japanese you know today or not the japanese we fought during world war two the japanese that they are nice people and everything of that type we've had japanese students living with us in our homes in california for many many years and they are and of the like can ask for better but the
japanese during world war two are not that nice of people and that's all i'll say about them but do you think that the japanese people will ever be able to forgive thing americans after all this destruction and both arrests managua saki or i don't know their will or not a program for fiber if i had been living in here schumer and i got saki at that particular time i probably won't forgive me either because those people suffered an awful lot but whether they will accept it or not dropping the atomic bomb saved their lives and our lives japanese lives if we had had to invade japan the japanese casualties would have been much much much much higher and higher casualties would have been for the thing you know they're still giving out purple hearts that were made to get allowed in the invasion of japan we still haven't used up all the purple hearts that were manufactured at that time it was not
a nice war fifteen million people got killed during world war two and they all have bad stories to tell about it and hindsight do you think that there was any way to avoid it using the atomic weapon any other option that would have achieved the same call three main options one was to put a blockade around japan and start of the people the death how do you a star of people of death are already living on one thousand calories if you can't do it. a second and then the other two options were dropped the atomic weapons or put a pull scale invasion into japan the atomic weapons weather had quis all the less casually overall than if the invasion of japan would have done and if you ask any g.i. that what they're going to but even if it was in a service over and over the pacific and you know their little of the atomic bomb
and i think my next door neighbor had come over here when he found out what i did a dump in the atomic bomb and he come over here at six o'clock one morning pounding on my door says i just found out what you did you save my life and i says are you proud of my door at six o'clock again the i thought i won't say but big that's all i can say but everybody is in the pacific at the time says will come up to me and say you saved my life do you regret being on that mission that dropped the first ever atomic bomb i regret we ever had to have made so i regret every mission i had over europe and everything of that type i drop a lot of bombs over there to kill people and probably killed seven trillions but do i regret the atomic mission i regret we had to do it there's a fellow here yesterday and what was it he was saying that the japanese could apologize to was for making us drop the atomic bomb that was a new twist on things i'm never heard before but i'd regret that we had to do it but i think we had to do it nordic and the war with
a minimum loss of life so you know of course the issue as nuclear warfare is still very relevant today as the threat of nuclear war still lingers is there anything that you would like to say the politicians today that are control as of the world's nuclear stockpiles i can i say that any politician any diplomat anybody in any five . area of authority today i would like never to see another atomic weapon used but i'm afraid we're going to we will not see it by russia or we will not see it by the bay ger powers or anything else i dread the day when the terrorists are going to get their clear weapons because they are not near as thoughtful of the consequences of nuclear bombings as we are as major powers are and they will toss in a wild like matchsticks i'm afraid my last question for you if world war three
broke out today god for bad and you were given the same order if you were they said go drop an atomic bomb on whatever city would you do it again if everything was exactly the same as you had was then that's the point where you'd could go i know it's not possible to really duplicate things that precisely but if this same situation existed again exactly as then as it had back in one thousand nine hundred five yes i would go on it i would volunteer for the bounce of my fact i don't want to go to war. for bush. the but. always ads by one vote for kerry.
this is not a production but in war and. let me show you see just everybody you showed us a pretty tree they have no idea about the hardships that we face. like one this is it you know all too new to. bring in the army to life forever the mother is the most precious thing in the world. of self-sacrifice and her recent book those who understands it fully but you have to live a. real life stories from. nineteen forty five don't call. the wrong. that minister is no warning of radiation risks his wall fall is spread to the region contaminated by chernobyl it's believed the bunning could produce
