USAF, JASDF participate in NCO bilateral exchange

The claw of a Morbark Tub Grinder drops typhoon debris with metal rims into a separate pile of debris on Kadena Air Base, Japan, March 4, 2014. When metal enters the tub grinder, it can severely damage the machine, causing the blades to bind and build pressure in the cavity of the tub. Once too much pressure has built up, blades can shoot through the steel around the tub, causing excessive damage and a major safety issue. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Hailey R. Staker)
