Each of the other destroyers pulled up next to the Missouri for its special passengers to go aboard, but not the Lansdowne. We were ordered to stop a nice distance away, and the Japanese delegation was forced to take a small launch to the Missouri. The brass wanted to rub their faces in it. -George Balle
