 MCB Camp Butler, Okinawa Details

MCB Camp Butler, Okinawa
Marine Corps Base Camp Smedley D. Butler (or Butler Marine Base to natives) is a United States Marine Corps base located in the Japanese prefecture of Okinawa. It was named for legendary Marine Smedley D. Butler.

Camp Smedley D. Butler is actually a collection of facilities and satellite installations spread throughout Okinawa. Camp Smedley D. Butler was formerly called Camp or Fort Buckner, named for Army General Simon Bolivar Buckner, Jr., who commanded ground forces in the invasion of Okinawa and was killed in the last days of the battle. The renaming of Buckner to Butler occurred after most US Army troops left Okinawa, and the base was transferred to the USMC.
