Tugging their way to strengthened bonds

Competitors of the 11th Annual Northern Air Defense Force Commander’s Cup tug-of-war event stand in formation during opening remarks at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Oct. 27, 2012. Nineteen teams competed, but only one would stand out as the champion and receive the commander’s cup. The competition strengthened bonds between U.S. and Japanese forces and improved bilateral relations. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Kia Atkins)
