The bloody battle of Okinawa started on Easter Sunday, April 1, 1945 and ended on June 21. More than 200,000 American and Japanese troops and civilians died. Japanese kamikaze exacted a horrific toll. The battleā€™s ferocity and tremendous death toll helped convince American leaders of the need to use atomic bombs to end the war.

Join MSgt Stephen Walter USMCR (Ret.) for a viewing of the film Okinawa: the Last Battle of World War II. A discussion of the battle will follow.
