Sweeney's at Peace Memorial Park Okinawa, Japan

Click to Enlarge
I took a trip to Peace Memorial Park in Okinawa, Japan (not to be confused with Peace Memorial in Hiroshima) and decided to find the Sweeny's that were on the memorial stones. The Battle of Okinawa was the bloodiest battle in Japan during WWII. There were no Sweeny's, but their were some Sweeney's.
