Submits Recent Photos of Okinawa

Our Society Member, William V. Brand, has sent the site
some recent photographs of Okinawa. Mr. Brand was in
the US Army assigned to Okinawa 1953-1956, (524Th
MP Co., which later was changed to 98th MP Bn and
later RASP, (Ryukyu Armed Forces Police), as a military
Policeman and later changed to a Supply Sergeant.  He
returned to Okinawa 1958-1960, as a Supply sergeant
assigned to the US Army Stockade, near Camp Kue at
the bottom of Jagaru Hill.  He returned to Okinawa again
in 1966 through 1967 as an S-4 Sergeant, 2nd Log
Command in the Machinato Service Area that included 6
months TDY to 1st Log Command in Saigon, Republic
Viet Nam. After 22 years of military service and stationed
502nd MI Bn in Korea, he retired.  

Mr. Brand returned to Okinawa as a civilian in
December 1969 for 2 years.  For the past 15 - 18 years
Mr. Brand visits Okinawa twice a year (April and
October). He usually travels space available on military
aircraft, but for the last two years he has traveled by
commercial aircraft.

For those of us who lived and worked on Okinawa in the
early days, 50's and 60's, the changes in scenery will be
very dramatic!
