Thousands pay respects to those who perished during Battle of Okinawa

While standing in front of the walls of the Cornerstone of Peace, John V. Roos speaks to attendees at a ceremony prior to the 2013 Okinawa Memorial Service for All War Dead June 23 at the Okinawa Prefectural Peace Memorial Park in Itoman. "You Can't help but be moved by (more than) 12,000 American names inscribed in these walls, along with the thousands of others who lost their lives in bitter conflict during the Battle of Okinawa," said Roos, the U.S. Ambassador to Japan.
