Like the Imperial Navy, the Japanese Army
took the best, and trained them to be:
Fighter pilots
Bomber pilots
Reconnaissance pilots
Ground/staff officers
Those found unfit for flight training,were
sent to ground assignments such as:
Service personnel
Ground crew

Graffiti: Japanese Style.
It is not well known, but Japanese aviators
dedicated their bombs too!

Japanese pilots would say "The bomb to the
right, is a present to Chiang Kai Shek".

"The bomb to the left, is sure to hit and
destroy the American devils".
