Bulldoze Bases

By: Gary Kindred

Date Posted: 2000-09-08

I just finished visiting Okinawa after 32 years. I lived with my Okinawan family while there and not once did I hear an Okinawan complain about military bases or say they wanted them removed. I am for removing all the bases so that I don't have to listen to all the people who probably are Japanese and not Okinawan complain about it. My Aunt worked at Camp Kue hospital as a nurse for 40 years from 1946 to 1986. She would never have had as good a job had the base not been there. When we remove the bases I think that all the buildings and runways and facilities should be bulldozed so that the Okinawans get their precious land back just the way it was when we rented it. Another point, we did not start the war. The Japanese started the war and they lost. When you start a war and lose you give up your right to make claims to anything.
