War Photos from Okinawa 1

My father, Lt. R. T. Kowallis, as I have mentioned in earlier blogs, was leader of a small group of U.S. Army soldiers who produced and analyzed photos in the Pacific Theater, notably during and after the invasion of Okinawa. Among my father's photos from his time on Okinawa in 1945 was a book of photos, some with captions, that was likely produced for the Army. I will be posting these photos from the book over the next months to preserve them. Perhaps someone will recognize a family member in one of the photos. I would be interested to hear from you if you do.

You can read more about the Battle of Okinawa on Wikipedia,, and
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

Note: Be sure to visit my other blogs on Okinawa in 1945:
