When I was moving into my office at the Mental Health Center on Kadena, there was a stack of posters just lying around that depicted the American GI's coming ashore on Okinawa in 1945. One of the young people who was clearing the junk out of the office so that I could move in asked me if I would like to have one. As a history major, as a a guy whose father was a decorated World War II veteran, I was pleased to accept. I liked the poster so much that I had it matted and framed. It now hangs in my office. Unfortunately, this photo fails to do it justice.
