There were about 6 settlements that were located on Iwo Jima. The island also had only one officer. Everyone was worried because they thought that the US was going to invade Iwo Jima and start a battle with japan. So, they left the island and went somewhere else. In the beginning of the war, the US marines sent about 70,000 soldiers to a island called Iwo Jima.
All their decisions were influenced by the lesson they learned at the battle of Iwo Jima. The 1st April the invasion began despite the Kamikaze attacks. Only a fifth of all the 1,500 ships that the US owned were warships, the rest were for transport of people and/or supplies. On April 1, U.S. Marines made their first landing on Okinawa, it was a surprise for them to find only light resistance from the Japanese. By the end of that day there was 60000 US soldiers in the bay of Okinawa.
He was assigned as a second lieutenant and a Bombardier on the B-24 liberator bomber later named “The superman” by Louie and his crewmates. In April of 1943, during a bombing mission against the Japanese-held island of Nauru, “The superman” was badly damaged.

Louie and some of his crew mates were assigned to another B-24 nicknamed “The Green Hornet” and was notorious amongst the other pilots as a “lemon” and
After several months the burner manufacturer shipped some improved nozzles that would allow them to process 9 yards of dirt per day with the same effort and less fuel. A new rule, applying the clean air act, required an air pollution permit from our state’s new army of EPA funded clean air regulators if they increased processing capacity over 5 yards per day. The cost of that new permit was $120,000 plus all the additional regulators and inspections now involved in the project, and would cause a delay of several months. No other modifications were needed, this was only for the cost of compliance. They opted not to install the improved fuel efficiencies.

Little Boy was a codename for the uranium atomic bomb. However, Tenno Hirohito, the Emperor of Japan, during World War II would not agree to those circumstances. Truman then authorized the use of the atomic bomb, which was made to save American troops because military advisers stated that around half a million soldiers lives were at risk if they were sent overseas (“The Bombings of Hiroshima” n.p.). Around one-hundred and forty thousand civilians died over time from the effects of the atomic bomb and almost seventy percent of the buildings were destroyed. Only five buildings didn’t need major repairs even though their buildings are more stable than ones in America for earthquakes regulations (Hersey 81).

After President Truman’s book came out it said that half a million American lives were saved.
