MC Air Station Iwakuni Military Lawyer | Court Martial Attorney

Located in Iwakuni, Yamaguchi, Japan, the air station has been operated since 1938 when the Japanese government acquired the area southeast of Iwakuni in the Nishiki River for the purpose of establishing a naval air station. The base has a long history that goes back to World War II when it was used as a headquarters for training and defense base. On July 8, 1940, the base was commissioned and a new branch, the Etajima Naval Academy, was created in September 1943. By this time, there are about 96 trainers, 150 zero fighter planes and nearly 1000 cadets housed in the station.
In May and August 1945, however, the Iwakuni Station was attacked by the American B-29 squad. At the end of war, military forces from various countries including the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Britain occupied the base. It became a United States military base in 1952.
