Firefighter USAF Misawa AB
A U.S. Air Force fire protection helmet sits on the ground in front of a fire truck at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Aug. 7, 2019. Airman 1st Class Adam Cardona, a Dallas, Texas, native, attended firefighter training for three months prior to receiving orders to his first base, Misawa AB, which resulted in him feeling anxious. However, he found solace through the welcoming embrace of local American and Japanese community members. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Collette Brooks)
