The island is home to nearly 74 percent of U.S. military bases in Japan, with around 27,000 personnel currently stationed.
A new U.S. base is planned for the island, but it was opposed by Okinawan officials before the crash, and the BBC reports construction of that base has been temporarily put on hold.
