A brush up

SAPANG BATO, Angeles City, Philippines - Staff Sgt. Ruth Phillips , a native of Belt, Mont., currently assigned to 51st MXS, Osan AB, ROK paints the wall of a building, while she and other Airmen paint two buildings of the Sapang Bato Elementary School located in Angeles City Philippines on April 9. The Airmen pulled their own money together in order to buy painting supplies and then took a break from Balikatan 2011 to volunteer and spread good will to the Sapang Bato community. Balikatan is a regularly scheduled exercise focusing on interoperability of forces and training and assistance in humanitarian and civic assistance operations. The experience gained in Balikatan complements our security assistance program and will improve upon existing AFP counter-terrorism programs. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Cohen A. Young)
