Atomic Friendly Fire

From the Japan Times:
A U.S. Army second lieutenant was officially registered as an atomic bomb victim Monday at the Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for Atomic Bomb Victims.

Joseph Dubinsky of Pennsylvania died at age 27 when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, where he was being held as a prisoner of war, in August 1945. He is the eighth American POW to be registered at the hall.

There is apparently a drive to get four more US POWS who died in the bombing registered as well.
