Ready, aim…basket!

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jarrod Clark, center, a 35th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, readies for a shot at the basket as two Koku-Jieitai members and U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Ebony Jenkins, left, a 35th Security Forces Squadron member, attempt to block his shot during a 10-day U.S.-Japan Bilateral Career Training at Chitose Air Base, Japan, April 17, 2017. The U.S. Airmen joined their Koku-Jieitai counterparts for a friendly game of basketball aimed to bring to the nations together on the court. While Clark did miss this shot, he made many others with help from his Koku-Jieitai teammates. Just as he experienced on the flightline repairing and maintaining jets, his teammates always had his back on the court. Koku-Jieitai is the traditional term for Japan Air Self Defense Force used by the Japanese. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
