SAIPAN, Northern Mariana Island—Robert A. Burke, a World War II veteran waves as his car stops at the review stand at the end of a parade honoring the World War II veterans as a part of the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Saipan, June 15. Burke was one of six veterans to return to Saipan for the ceremony. The 70th anniversary may mark the last commemoration ceremony of the Saipan Battle due to the age and health of the WWII veterans.
