FIELD BLOG -- October on Saipan
Sunday, October 25th
The voluneers arrived from Japan and the States today.
One of the volunteers, McKenzie Waterston, is from New York, and this is her second trip to Saipan to search for the remains with us.
She is taking the courses in military history and archaeology in her senior, and her passion to bring the missing servicemen home made her join this trip.
We took them to Banzai Cliff, where many Japanese civilians commited suicide by jumping off the cliff during the battle.
We planned to start the field work from Monday, but this was impossible because of the conditions given by Historic Preservatio Office (HPO).
We hope this would be solved at the meeting with them tomorrow.
