In 1941, a Japanese seamstress apprentice named Shoichi Yokoi was recruited to serve in the army. Yokoi, who was then preparing to get married in a marriage arranged by his family, delayed the plans until he returned from Manchuria, where he had been assigned for a year, and then would fulfill the family promise. But in December of that year, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, and Yokoi’s service became permanent.

In 1943 he was sent to the front when Japan invaded the Mariana Islands and his fiancée would never hear from him again. The stranger stopped immediately, fell to his knees and immediately began to pray.

But everything was a trick. When Duenas was one step away from him, the man jumped into the rifle but the little energy he had were not enough to get the weapon. Without problems, the two hunters subjected him and tied his hands on his back.
