Fellowship with friendly firefighters
Japan Ground Self-Defense Force Soliders from 1st Training Unit, Camp Higashi-Chitose, Hokkaido, Japan, and U.S. Air Force Airmen with the 35th Civil Engineer Squadron fire department, pause for a photo during a JGSDF shadow program at Misawa Air Base, Japan, March 5, 2018. During their full day of relationship building, Airmen showed their JGSDF counterparts their unique jobs and shared how to accomplish their duties, allowing JGSDF Soldiers the opportunity to use a variety of new English words to increase their communication skills. By bridging the gap between the two languages, Team Misawa can better integrate with all branches of the Japan Self-Defense Force increasing mission fluidity.
