I have a letter in my postion from an unknown person. It does not state the ship they were on, but talks about dropping anchor off the coast about ten miles to the North of Naha once the Capitiol of this the largest Island in the Ryukyus chain. The only name stated in the letter is Lt. General Simon Bolivar Buckner. It mostly talks about what they seen apon arrival. Would like to know if this was a general letter sent out, and if anyone who might also have a copy know who this person might be/have been. If any one would like a emailed copy please contact me.
My Father Samuel Abernathy was a Master Sergeant. He helped with the Alaskan Pipe Line, and served in the Ryukyus campaign. He passed away in 1984. Would love to know if anyone knew of him.
