The following images define the word culture in recent events of my life:
A human traffic jam: Over 29,000 Japanese visitors flocked the US Naval Base for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival 2013.
Every year, the Japanese celebrate the arrival of the cherry blossoms by enjoying picnics under the sakura trees.
Paying homage to the Great Buddha, Daibutsu, in Kamakura, Japan.
Dress up season: A classic American tradition.
Re-enlistment is an honored military tradition. Always a privilege to witness such a sacred commitment.
Frocking Ceremony: Promoting service members to higher roles and responsibilities.
