Camp Lester Military Lawyer | Court Martial Attorney<h3.
Camp Lester or Camp Kuwae is part of the Camp Base Butler complex and operated by the US Marine Base Corp. It is located in Chatan town in Okinawa encompassing the flat coastline that faces the East China Sea. Various living quarters are found within the camp in addition to important facilities and amenities including a military hospital, school, soccer field, and town office among others.

On December 2, 1996, a Special Action Committee on Okinawa report was released by both the United States and Japan government enumerating recommendations that will eventually neutralize military presence in the region. One of the steps included in the report was the return of the majority of the Camp Lester area that should be completed by March 2008 but not before the Naval Hospital is transferred to Camp Zukeran.  Also included in the report is to consolidate US housing areas within the camp area with Camp Zukeran that should also end by March 2008.
