rski's new Iwakuni Page
I was stationed at Iwakuni with the USMC. There is a large Maine air base here in addition to the local sites. I would have tho say that I enjoyed my time in Iwakuni. It was niece to be among the locals as they lived their lives and not in the larger cities of Japan.
Would like to go back some day remeber the trips to the castle and the Kinti bridge
