The Unknown Soldiers -- Okinawa 1945

Among my father's photos from his time on Okinawa in 1945 are several of soldiers for which he provided no name or other comments. One soldier, in particular, was part of the Military Police. It may be that Lt. Kowallis was just doing a favor for these other soldiers by developing pictures for them.  If you recognize who any of the soldiers are in these photos, I would be interested in that information. Just add a comment below to let me know.














You can read more about the Battle of Okinawa on Wikipedia, PBS.org, and History.com.
Other good sites for information on the Battle of Okinawa during 1945 include:
And for post-war Okinawa, this is a very good site with lots of pictures from 1945 through 1972: Remembering Okinawa
