This I Believe. Margery Finn Brown is an Army wife. She married her husband, who was a football star at Westpoint, the day after his graduation in 1934. When he was sent to Japan with our army of occupation after World War II, she packed their household goods, took their daughters--they only had four at the time--and moved to Tokyo. Later, in Kyoto, she got a job on a Japanese newspaper. There she got to know the Japanese people in a way not usually possible for outsiders, and in doing so, reinforced the tolerant creed she now expresses.
