Battle of Okinawa
Today we feature a picture of an American Soldier fighting at the Battle of Okinawa. The battle of Okinawa was one of the bloodiest battles in American History. 12,520 Americans and 110,000 Japanese were killed in the fighting. It was on this day (June 22) in 1945 that American troops achieved victory in the Battle of Okinawa.
