    Soto Dam Memorial Ceremony 2021

    SASEBO, Japan (May 28, 2021) – Commander, Fleet Activities Sasebo Command Master Chief and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force JS Sawagiri (DD-157) Command Master Chief Tadashi Omae lay a wreath at the Soto Dam memorial ceremony May 28, 2021. The memorial was erected in 1956 by Sasebo City for the 53 American POWS and 14 Japanese laborers who died building Soto Dam during World War II. The bilateral ceremony, normally attended by the public, was conducted by a small number of U.S. Navy, Sasebo City, Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, and local community representatives due to COVID-19 limitations.
