Shōichi Yokoi (横井 庄一 Yokoi Shōichi, March 31, 1915 – September 22, 1997) was a Japanese sergeant in the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) during the Second World War. He was among the last three Japanese holdouts to be found after the end of hostilities in 1945, discovered in the jungles of Guam in January 1972, almost 28 years after US forces had regained control of the island in 1944.

We traveled a long way to see this hole! lol-- It's where Shoichi Yokoi hid out in Guam for 28 years, vowing not to surrender.

Jungles of Guam.  I liked to play in a cave formerly occupied by Japanese soldiers.  One such soldier, Shoichi Yokoi, was found in 1972.  He was aware for ten years that the war was over but was fearful to reveal himself.  I was relieved when I realized "his" cave was not "my" cave!
