U.S. Air Force Col. Christopher Amrhein, 18th Wing vice commander, and Col. Debra Lovette, 18th Mission Support Group commander, dig into a pile of dirt during a ground breaking ceremony Feb. 24, 2016, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. The ceremony was held to begin construction on the new $47 million Rocker NCO club, which was closed for reconstruction at the beginning of 2016. A Shinto priest performed a traditional purification ritual to ask the spirits for safety during the construction.
