Laurence Klees of the U.S. Army's 196th Ordnance Battalion concentrates on the dangerous task at hand as he disarms a 500-pound World War II bomb that was found during construction at Naha. The previous year, 21 years after the end of the war, the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Section on Okinawa still received 854 calls and removed 92 tons of explosives. Some of it was detonated on the island, the rest was dumped at sea.
