George Seymour entered military service before the war ended, but only went overseas after the Japanese surrendered. He was stationed on then American-occupied Okinawa, and shares his experiences about being there. He also tells us about his civilian life during the war.
While George Seymour was oversees in Okinawa, he never really came close to military action, just the events that would happen at the bases. He was added to flying status, and on one mission he was sent to fly over a previous atomic bomb explosion to see if there was an radioactivity. In the Air Force, there was a minimum weight and George had to eat bananas to make sure he could maintain weight. While in the military, they wasted many things, like cameras.
