Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that on Wednesday the three municipalities hosting the Kadena AB – the city of Okinawa and the towns of Kadena and Chatan – sent to the Air Force’s 18th Wing, the Defense Ministry’s Okinawa Bureau, the Foreign Ministry’s Okinawa office, and the U.S. Consulate Naha letters of protest over the alleged incidents of driving under the influence of alcohol by Kadena-based airmen on April 17 and 21. According to the papers, the letters called on the U.S. military to take preventative measures and to thoroughly implement educational programs for service members. Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that the municipalities also called for a drastic review of the SOFA.
