Japan Gets Their Land back

The news reported that Japan will finally be receiving 9,800 acres of land from America that we took during World War 2. The 9,800 acres on the island of Okinawa was being used as a military training base 960 miles southwest of Tokyo. The US did returned some of the land back in 1972.

To help with the return of the land, Japanese government officials helped to build helicopter landing pads and create roads for US troops to carry in building materials. Our troops were told that they were still allow to use some parts of the land for training. This area was used for jungle war fare training which has been negotiated since 1990.

The defense official told everyone that the land will formally be hand over on December 21, Ambassador Kennedy will be attending alongside the commander of US forces. Carter arrived in Japan on Monday to make sure president Trump doesn't change his mind about the agreement.
