Sharon Smith poses with Misawa Mayor, former 35th Fighter Wing commander

Sharon Smith, the wife of Maj. Brian Smith, a physical therapist with the 35th Medical Operations Squadron, poses for a photo with Misawa Mayor Kazumasa Taneichi and U.S. Air Force Col. R. Scott Jobe, a former 35th Fighter Wing commander, after the mayor received a photo from Smith at Misawa Air Base, Japan, in 2017. Smith owned the photo from a family relative, which detailed the two pilots of the “Miss Veedol” aircraft who made the first Trans-Pacific flight from Japan to the U.S. on Oct. 5, 1931. The gift and piece of history strengthened relations between the U.S. military community and Japan and remains in Misawa City Hall today. (Courtesy photo)
