Osaka 1946 2013/3/15 07:11
My family lived in Osaka, Japan from 1946-1948.
There was a large street called Lightning Boulevard. What would that be called today?
My father, Lt. Col. Powers, was with the 27th Infantry Regiment 25th Inf. Division. Where would his post have been located?
I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me. I hope to visit Osaka again.
