Hi friends from Okinawa! This is just a quick note to say that we are fine and were not affected by the recent events in mainland Japan. On the day of the earthquake, we did have tsunami warnings and evacuations, but there was no damage on this island. There is no threat of nuclear radiation here.
Right now, members of our American military community living here are working hard to assist in the disaster relief efforts in Sendai and the surrounding areas.
I wrote an article about it for Matador Network, which you can read here.
Take care everyone and please keep Japan in your thoughts!
