Snipers on Okinawa 1945

Snipers on Okinawa 1945

The war was over but the fighting had not stopped on Okinawa. Chief Petty Officer Ken Mead and three other sailors from the USS Antietam CV-36 aircraft carrier departed the ship to go ashore in hope of returning to Hawaii and then the States. They were trapped there for a month and a half with Jap Snipers everywhere, two typhoons, jungle diseases, and food shortage.
