Here are a few photos that I took of my JGSDF counterparts at Yamasakura 2003 during our goodbye party. There was a LOT of Sake & Beer consumed that evening… :woozy_face:

Captain Endo, our JGSDF Cell commander

First Sergeant Suzuki, the JGSDF side NCOIC for our cell

Staff Sergeant Sasamoto (center) the joker of our cell, plus a couple other JGSDF troops

The colors of their camo uniforms was very similar to our BDUs
