From 1968 through most of 1969 I was stationed at Kadena AFB and in July 1969 I was very fortunate to meet an Okinawan young lady that swept my heart away. She was 18 I was 19. She was very very nice had a spirit to match and I still miss her dearly today. Now I am retired and would like to find out if she is still around or maybe she married. Her name is Kina Tokiko (not sure on the spelling of the last name but that is how it sounded) and she lived in the Goya - Gate 2 Street area. She did attend the University of Tokyo. She and her family were awesome and accepted me into their family. When I was talking to Kina about our future, (I wanted her to be my life long partner, best friend, my wife and mother to my children) I told her that because my parents were extremely religious and they find it would difficult to accept her. WRONG THING TO SAY - her family rejected me and I never seen her again no matter what I did or said. It wasn't till many many years later I found out what basically said was that Kina wasn't worthy and basically humiliated her and her family. I have tried many times over the years to contact here but to no avail. If she married then I wouldn't bother - but one never knows. I never married I have never met someone as precious as her. She was my first date in my life Sorry for all the mush.
