MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan - A Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni resident shows a Japanese child how to carve a pumpkin during a Halloween Carnival in Iwakuni City, Japan, Oct. 21, 2017. Japanese American Society Iwakuni and Iwakuni City wanted to bring the American-style Halloween Carnival to the community of Iwakuni City so that the Japanese locals could experience this event. Adults and children dressed up to play games, trick-or-treat, color and carve pumpkins. This is the first time that the JAS has collaborated with Iwakuni City to host an event. The purpose of the JAS is to provide educational, social and cultural opportunities between American and Japanese communities. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Mason Roy)
