I and everyone at Onkyo Group wish to convey our deep appreciation and heart-felt thanks to all our US friends and members of the US armed forces for the invaluable assistance and contribution to relief efforts in the wake of the 11 March earthquake and tsunami. That you have stood by Japan, sharing our grief in a time of unspeakable hardship and loss, lending whatever practical support you can to the immense task of reconstruction and recovery, demonstrates the strength of the bonds of friendship between our two countries. Such kindness and generosity has encouraged our hearts and lightened our spirits, and will never be forgotten.
Arigatou!Naoto OtsukiHonorary ChairmanOnkyo Group
My heart goes out to everyone affected by this natural disaster. My prayers are with you. After spending almost six years at Kadena AB, Okinawa, I had many friends that I met from the Island and Mainland. I feel bad that I can not come back to help you. Thank you for being so nice to me while I was stationed in Japan.If there is any thing I can do for you, please contact me.Nathaniel Rudison Navarre, Florida
Mr. Naoto Otsuki - Being an Onkyo product supporter and a United States Air Force retiree, I was sincerely moved after having read you note of appreciation. Thank you and know that because of you and many like yourself, we the Veterans of all our Armed Forces will continue answering the call; "come what may." Thank you for taking the time and expressing your sincere appreciation.May God continue to Bless you all.RespectfullyJeffrey Codallo Miami, Florida
I am a Marine that was attached to the 31st MEU and took part in Operation Tomodachi. It was our honor to give back to Japan, Marines in Japan have been the subject of a lot of very strong local criticism from some Japanese citizens who don't see our presence necessary or wanted. It was nice to be able to show in a very positive way the good we can do for the Japanese people in peacetime. The only thing Marines do better than working is fighting, but let's pray that our stance in Japan remains only as a deterrent and not a direct action force. Thank you for your comments and God bless Japan!Lance Corporal Hancock Camp Pendleton, California
It is indeed an honor, That there is an Allie to the U.S. still left. A man Who truly is grateful and honors what we as nations have done together hand in hand to promote democracy. As well as economic growth for both nations. I hope and pray that the American corporations would only learn from you the ethic of quality over profit margins. I will not buy American , I am so sorry to say. The Japanese people have embraced the true "work" ethic. Your "work" reflects the real you. I'm always glad to sell and buy Japanese products . They have the best in products -- bar none. May you and your people recover from this tragic blow in loss of live and property. May our alliance as nations and friends go on as long as the life of the radiation in the reactors at Fukushima.An American veterian USA

The support Onkyo shows to the American soldiers is one of the reasons i will be a loyal customer. Thanks again!Po2 Victor Amaral Plymouth MA
It brought such sadness to my heart after hearing about the devestating earthquake and subsequent tsunami that hit this area. Even though a lot around the world don't like the people of the U.S. We are ALWAYS there to lend a helping hand when one is neededBrian W Chicago, IL
I have done several 1 year tours in Okinawa and the Mainland. What a great gesture for the Charman of a corporation! You are welcome Mr.Otsuki! God put us together for a reason, of that I am sure. Our CEO's etc. could take a lesson from you and the Japanese people! May God bless you, Japan, and her people!Robert Colon Havelock, North Carolina
