    We don't often think of the ravages of war. These photos help to emphsize it. Any idea of the locations? It would be interesting to compare it to what the area looks like today.

    From the info on the edge of the road sign, perhaps 3077th QM Gas Supply Co which served on Okinawa. If so, Naha would have been a big enough city to have concrete buildings.
