“I first arrived here in Okinawa as a JAG, that’s what the Judge Advocate General call a military lawyer in the Air Force. I was assigned to Kadena Air Base here in Okinawa, Japan. And it was during that three-year period that I learned there was a problem here for the local national ladies who were having babies for, most of the American guys, who were leaving and leaving the women without any financial support for financial support for the children and that concerned me. When I left here in 1993 I decided that I look into some avenue in the United States to help these ladies.”.

Can’t believe this is still happening. Ladies living near military bases especially where foreign troops are stationed have to be careful. I hope the children and mothers get the help they need, it’s a very sad situation.

Many Japanese girls are so pure and innocent. They should know better. Especially stay away from blacks.

This has been going on since the end of WWII. There are about 50,000 US military personnel stationed in Japan along with 40,000 dependents of military personnel and another 5,500 U.S. civilians employed by the Department of Defense. In Okinawa there are over 10 bases and many more air stations, training areas etc. This is bound to happen. Simple, both parents need to be financially responsible for any child they produce, just like in the USA.
