Kadena Special Olympics wraps up day's events

Special-needs athletes, American volunteers and local national interpreters, along with senior officials from the Government of Japan, Okinawa Prefectural Government, local communities and U.S. military members join in the Circle of Friendship as the ending ceremony of the 12th Annual Kadena Special Olympics begins at Kadena Air Base, Japan, Nov. 5. KSO began in 2000 with approximately 400 athletes and 600 volunteers as an 18th Wing community goodwill initiative to strengthen U.S. - Okinawa relationships. Eleven years later, the event has doubled in size and participation. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Tara A. Williamson/released)
