MCAS FUTENMA, OKINAWA, Japan— Two Kokusai University students compete for the ball during a soccer game Dec. 17 on Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, Okinawa, Japan.

This was the first time Kokusai University students participated in an event on base.

The students, Marines and sailors split into four teams for a friendly tournament.

The games provided a way for the students and service members to bridge the gap and break down language barriers.
