A Japanese mother and her child stand by as battle-scarred veterans of the Second Marine Division march into the patio at Union Station on July 31, 1945. This unusual scene occurred when a group of 96 Japanese returned here from a relocation camp in Arkansas and unexpectedly encountered 400 Leathernecks who had just arrived from the Pacific.
