Thanks for the pictures of Eta Jima..brought back memories of a little blonde headed American tomboy 1950 to 1953 who hated having her hair pulled out by the Japanese who had not seen blonde headed children. The boat in the bay looks very much like Sgt. Warrenington's yacht we spent many happy hours on. As American Girl Scout, we took part in the ceremony to dedicate the Peace Building in Hiroshima. My Dad Sgt. Theo Waters worked in the building that is in the ballfield picture. He was housing officer. We had our Christmas programs in the Chapel in the picture. We visited the orphanages and took supplies to the children with radation sores and blinded by the bomb in Hiroshima. We also went to Kure to the BOOC hospital and visited with the soldiers wounded and sent back from Korea. I am grateful that I had the chance to live in Japan in tha era. Thanks for the memories!
