Also, Gen. Simon Buckner was the commander of the 10th Army and led the amphibious a**ault (Operation Iceberg) on the Japanese island of Okinawa. The battle of Okinawa was at its end before control was handed over to Marine Gen. Roy Geiger.....

Correction to your numbers: marines only had 88K of the Okinawa force(under the orders of the US Army), not the marines command), 18k Navy, and the remaining 102K was Army. I understand how they leave the fine details out when they puff the marine ego!
