Koku-Jieitai Master Sgt. Shinichi Kishimoto, left, a 2nd Air Wing Aircrew Flight Equipment member, installs a parachute into an F-15J Eagle seat as U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. James Berg, right, a 35th Operations Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment craftsman, observes during a 10-day U.S.-Japan Bilateral Career Training at Chitose Air Base, Japan, April 18, 2017. Working side-by-side with their Japanese counterparts, U.S. Airmen learned how the Koku-Jieitai executes their mission. Berg traveled from Misawa Air Base, Japan, with nine other U.S. Airmen for the bilateral exchange event. Koku-Jieitai is the traditional term for Japan Air Self Defense Force used by the Japanese.
