On island mid-1960s
I loved Okinawa. The maids carrying their babies,
seamstresses making matching clothes for my sisters and I , the farmers
washing their horses in the ocean, Sobe Village, Sukiran schools, the
sunsets, the bus ride around the island...and so much more.
Your site brings back many memories of my preteen and teen years. I actually have to ask my mother the name of our housing area and house number but I do know it was the new housing on the right of Kue Hospital as you drove onto the Camp. It's sad that the housing area is likely gone now. Seeing your site and reviewing all the posts make me want to go back for a visit to see what all the changes are.
