Travel Photo: A Sign in a Museum

sign, military headquarters, Tomigusuku, Okinawa

Former Japanese Naval Underground Headquarters



 This photo was taken in the museum located above the tunnels at this site.

It tells how civilians were conscripted to assist the military with their war.

The military policy of "local procurement" provided an economical labor force.

Women and children were used for construction projects and, other things.

400,000 innocents were stuck in the battle zone.

Okinawans remember !
