Tsuyoshi Gibu, rear, Col. Stephen B. Lewallen Jr., front, and Sgt. Maj. Howard L. Kreamer plant a ceremonial Christmas tree on Camp Hansen Jan. 30. The tree was planted as a symbol of friendship between the local community of Kin Town and Camp Hansen. The tree will be used in future annual tree-lighting ceremonies. Gibu is the Kin Town mayor, Lewallen is the Camp Hansen commander, and Kreamer is the Camp Hansen sergeant major.
