WWII In The Pacific
Matching Photos?

I acquired some WWII Okinawa scrapbooks in an online auction and found a few photos that look curiously like the same spots where I'd taken photos while living in Okinawa from 1992-1995. Some are definite matches, others make me wonder if they do match. See if you think so:
