Master Sgt. Anthony Gonzales shows Okinawa elementary students the oven room and cooking facilities at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma mess hall July 18 during a tour of MCAS Futenma, Okinawa, Japan. The tour strengthened the bilateral relationship between Marines and Okinawa residents by allowing them to see what Marines do on a daily basis and their day-to-day responsibilities in the workplace. During the visit, guests enjoyed a meal at the Habu Pit, toured the mess hall and explored various static displays on the flight line. Gonzales is assigned to the MCAS Futenma mess hall and is an Albuquerque, New Mexico, native.
