On January 14, 1943, a captured Japanese Submarine was the star attraction of a military parade to raise funds for WWII.  This submarine had been captured the day after Pearl Harbor and was a part of a five ship force of mini-subs sent by the Japanese during the Pearl Harbor attack.  Join Roland Penttila and Dick Brown for the story of the war bonds tour through New Mexico and how the commander of that sub became Prisoner of War # 1.
