802ND AVIATION ENGINEERS BATTALION
OKINAWA 1949-1950 PG 2
These photos are from an album of a GI who was a member of the 802nd Aviation Engineers. They were an Army unit that was associated with Kadena Air Base. Their camp was at or near Kadena AB as many of the photos are of Kadena. At the time Kadena was home to the 13th Air Force which was on Okinawa from December 1948 to May of 1949. Several of the photos had 13th Air Force personnel in the photos based on shoulder patches that they wore.
