Sorry for the delay.

Next:
Still reported MIA a US soldier received the Medal of Honor in January.
A correspondent working for "Le Soir" interviewed the soldier in December of the same year.
This was the first contact with the outside world for the MIA since his capture in August a year earlier.
No longer a MIA he remained a POW until early September two years later.
Any idea who the specific POW might be..?

The answer is simple if one follows the leads, especially the last link mentioned.
Check the link in my last posting (on 11 Aug 2009) and look for a Major General... :)

I'll consider this quiz solved and leave it open.

Apologies all, Major General William Dean, highest ranking American Officer captured during the war. Never would have got it without your last clue.

Time to start again.
Next Question: At the end of World War II, Japan was occupied by the Allied Powers. This foreign presence marked the first time in its history that the island nation had been occupied by a foreign power. Name of treaty, date of signing and date of coming into effect which saw Japan was once again an independent state?

Is that Zhenbao Island/Damansky Island scene of Chinese and Soviet battles in 1969?
