Wandering U.S. Navy truck trips school principal’s anger

Date Posted: 2007-08-08

A US military truck drove onto the Maehara High School grounds Monday, went around the rotary, and returned to the main street in the Agena area.

The seconds-long transit triggered an outburst of anger and irritation from Uruma City Assembly members, the Board of Education and the high school principal. Principal Junko Oshiro wants to know “why an American truck came into my school?” She noted it was only last month that an armored vehicle had made an incursion onto the grounds of a nursing school, and “we had asked the American military to say it would never happen again.”

A witness described the truck as “a long type, about two tons, with two military guys in it. The license number was Navy 95 29619, and it came to the rotary from the main entrance to the school, went around the rotary, and back out. It was less than a minute, but we saw it.” A Parent-Teacher Association member asks if “they did it purposely, to get into the school.”

Morikazu Nakamura of the Uruma City Board of Education says “We’ll protest strongly to the military, and discuss with related institutions what to do next.” Maehara High School is asking the Naha Self Defense Agency to investigate and tell the truth. The Self Defense Agency says “we are checking with the American military. Please wait.”
