In Takae, Higashi around 7:15 a.m., about 10 armed U.S. military personnel made their way north on Okinawa Prefectural road 70. According to local eyewitnesses, the solders traveled north from the intersection at Arakawa Dam, carrying guns. A woman who saw the soldiers, said, “They looked tired. I guess it was after training.” She added, “What authority did they have to carry guns walking on the prefectural road as if they owned it?”
