Report: Japanese WW2 Soldiers Found Alive in Jungle

Japanese diplomats investigated claims Friday that two former Japanese soldiers have been hiding in the mountains of the southern Philippines since World War II.

If true, that's some serious dedication. It was impressive when they found Hiroo Onoda in 1974, I've read about that and seen a documentary on it. (Kind of sad, he was in hiding with a fellow soldier for decades, and near the end his friend was shot while stealing supplies, leaving him alone.) I expect this can't happen for that much longer, unless there is some weird breeding population of WWII Japanese soldiers out there raising generations to continue the war...

...that sounds like the plot of a novel.
