At the Air Review of Japan Air Self-Defense Force on October 16, 2011

"There is one episode which I shall never forget. A six-year-old boy had gone missing due to the tsunami, and his mother asked members of the SDF to "Please, please search for my son by any means possible." They desperately searched for the child in the mud where the family's house had stood, but they could not find him. However, they did find an Ultraman figurine, the six-year-old boy's most prized possession. I have heard that when they handed this figurine to the mother, she left the scene thanking them countless times as she wiped the mud from it again and again. I believe that it is actions like these that have communicated the sincerity of the SDF to the disaster victims and to the public as a whole."
