My Grandfather had a Tattoo on his Left Forearm.  Him and the members of his platoon all had received this tattoo before Okinawa.  It is a Skull with a sword going through the top and a snake wrapped around both if anyone has seen this tattoo or know anyone who might have please contact me.  Like I posted him and his platoon all got the same one.
Thank you
