This Day In History.....

1945: Japan surrenders (Aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, Japan formally surrenders to the Allies, bringing an end to World War II.)

1945:Vietnam independence proclaimed (Hours after Japan's surrender in World War II, Vietnamese communist Ho Chi Minh declares the independence of Vietnam from France.)

1959:The Mustang's Little Cousin (The Ford Motor Company introduced its new marque, the Ford Falcon, in the first nationwide closed-circuit television news conference.)
Personal note: I used to own a 1964 four door Ford Falcon (I got to drive it for a few days before my accident)
