Video: ‘Okinawa 1950s to 1960s’

This video, comprising still photos, was created and uploaded to YouTube by Donn Cuson (aka “Desert Donn”) on 5/12/13. The images are among the best I’ve seen from this period. I especially like the Okinawa minyo in the soundtrack. I couldn’t find any information about this recording on the video or in the accompanying comment. Cuson’s website, Remembering Okinawa, offers a wealth of priceless images from Okinawa’s 1945-1972 postwar period. For more on Cuson, see Tamiko Suzuki’s “American Veteran Passes on Information About Okinawa’s Postwar History” (Ryukyu Shimpo, 3/11/13).
