According to a report in The Greenville News, a $277,546 federal grant will go to the SC Department of Transportation’s Transportation Careers Training Program to “provide 35 unemployed, underemployed, females and minorities with job readiness skills, as well as an opportunity to receive their commercial driver’s license and certification in heavy equipment operation.”
The money is part of $6.7 million in job training grants awarded to 14 states from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Due to the diligence of a Hiroshima atomic bomb survivor, the names of three Americans World War II prisoners of war will be added to the official list of persons killed in the Aug. 6, 1945, blast.
Shigeaki Mori, 72, spent three decades locating the families of Ensign John J. Hantschel, Sgt. Ralph J. Neal and Sgt. Buford J. Ellison so they could officially request the names be added to the list, according to Stars and Stripes.
Their photographs have been added to those on display in the Hall of Remembrance at the Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims.
