  1. Hey Grant - way to go! Must have been a great Japan trip. Never been to Yokota but been to several places in Japan and far east during my Navy days, good times! You and strongman buddies look like you did great. Seen a military tail I.D. of YJ, reminds me of my old Navy squadron tail I.D. of YD.
