She died on this day two years ago.

Her real name was Iva Tougri and she was trapped in Japan after World War II started. She got a job for Radio Tokyo. She didn't actually call herself Tokyo Rose but she was tried and convicted of treason because she was an American citizen. She served a sentence of several years. When she was release one of first things she did was to a guest at a Marine corp reunion.

Before President Ford left office he granted her a full pardon because of evidence of perjury at her trial.
