My grandfather, Al
Roberson, was nineteen when he left San Francisco, California,
to go and fight in WWII. He was in the navy. The war ended while
he was on his way to Okinawa. He landed on Okinawa and stayed
at the navy base there. When he was there, a typhoon hit the
island. The typhoon hit on October 9, 1945.
