A disgusting event of American generals playing cupid to a Japanese soldier and a nurse took place on Okinawa. White gloved MP's kept out the riff-raff (including the muddy fighters who had taken the Japanese prisoners), two generals stood at attention, and a colonel did the marriage honors under a transplanted shrine.
