Tower of Hokon Okinawa

This postcard has a long journey getting to this spot and being listed on Ebay. A Marine in the 70s on his way to Viet Nam was on a ship that stopped in different places. He picked up this and other listed postcards here in Okinawa.
Tower of Hokon
This tower is dedicated to the souls of Lt. Colonel Igawa and other unknown soldiers and about 3000 native civilians who died in the fierce battle of Iejima. The Rocky hill in the background is Itatchu.
 Okinawa Long ago.
