Note of precaution: there are two topics that cause too much wild message traffic and tend to generate too much friction -- these topics are Politics and Religion. Please refain from using this Group as a platform for those personal viewpoints. We are here to remember our tours on Okinawa since the 1950s up until Reversion to the Japanese Air Self-Defense Forces on May 15, 1972. Let's share stories and experiences from our tours on Okinawa, remember old friends, and maybe, link up with someone we knew from years gone by. Thanks. Larry Smith; Group Owner. Radar Maintenance, Kume Jima 1966 - 1967; Naha AB 1968 - 1871; Kadena AB 1978 - 1983.
