Opening salmon remarks

U.S. Air Force Col. Travis Rex, the 35th Fighter Wing vice commander, addresses attendees to the 11th Annual Salmon Festival in Oirase, Japan, during the opening ceremony Nov. 19, 2016. The annual event attracts Japanese and Americans alike from hundreds of miles away and is known regionally as the largest salmon festival in Northern Japan. Every year, a Misawa Air Base commander speaks at the event as an opportunity to thank the Japanese community for their ongoing support of U.S. operations in the region.
