JAFSDF firing exercise shatters solemn peace ceremonies

Date Posted: 2006-06-30

The solemnity of Battle of Okinawa commemoration ceremonies Friday was rattled in the Katsuren area.

While residents were offering prayers for the war dead, Japanese Air Force Self Defense Forces were conducting a live fire exercise. The shooting has Uruma City residents up in arms, protesting “Why do they have an exercise on Memorial Day?”

Newspapers have asked the Air Force Self Defense Force for an explanation for the training exercise being conducted while many are mourning. A Naha Branch military spokesman says “we are very sorry. We were lacking in thought. We did stop doing training before noon, because this was just our normal training.”
