About the Book
Photographs taken by my father, Dr. Harold Spitz, when he was a medical officer in the US Air Force. He was stationed in Okinawa, Japan during the late fifties. His photographs capture a time of relative peace between the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The images document his and my mother's experiences living on and off Kadena Air Base for two years. His wonderful photos also document the first two years of their marriage together, for he was called to serve only a few months after they were married. All photos are in color, taken from Kodachrome slides. I designed the book.
