Members of Team Misawa participated in a 5K Color Run/Walk in honor of Pride Month. The run was about embracing the LGBTQ+ community as part of our team and family here at Misawa.

Held every year in the month of June in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan, Pride Month is a time for us to recognize the influence the LGBTQ+ community has around the world.

The Department of Defense (DoD) recognizes June as Pride Month, celebrating the history of LGBTQ+ service members who have bravely served and sacrificed in the U.S. military. Pride Month also upholds the DoD's commitment to diversity and inclusion in all military branches.
