Former Japanese army medic points injustice of war

91-year-old former Japanese army medic Masayoshi Matsumoto points at a photograph of himself taken in the 1940s, during an interview at his daughter's house in Sagamihara, south of Tokyo May 22, 2013. When Matsumoto joined the Japanese army in 1943 and was sent to occupy China as a medic, he thought he was taking part in a righteous war to free Asia from the yoke of Western imperialism. Seven decades later, the retired Christian pastor says it's his mission to speak out about the injustice of the war and the sufferings of women, mostly Asian and many Korean, forced to work in Japanese wartime military brothels.
