So I taught in Okinawa for 5 years and I've just read an article that is a first for me. A girl I taught in Okinawa in highschool ended up marrying a military man and just had a baby. Unfortunately the father of the child was killed in Iraq last August. I know that Japanese marry American military but it's the first time where I've encountered a situation where a student I taught lost somebody due to the war in Iraq. According to the article, she's moving to Tennessee to raise her son in her husband's hometown. I pray that everything works out with her move and her & her son's future.

The article can be found here.
