January 1970 - June 1973

Eddie was only four years old when we moved to Okinawa. He did not like it there in the beginning but when it was time to leave he did not want to come back to the states. MamaSan spoiled him rotten. She would come by early on Saturday and take Eddie to Naha, the capital, to see his Japanese warrior movies. She would spend the entire day with him at the theater. Eddie thought that was way too cool because he got to ride the Japanese bus. He could understand Japanese quite well which is much better than the rest of the family. He could even read lots of the Kanji characters. I have never been able to read a single one.
