B-29 Memorial Ceremony Honors Fallen
Lt. Col. Cataleya Carlson, 36th Airlift Squadron commander, waters a dogwood tree during the 47th annual B-29 Memorial Ceremony, at Sengen Shrine in Shizuoka City, Japan, June 22, 2019. Over 100 years ago, Japan donated 3,000 cherry blossom trees to the United States as a gesture of friendship, and the U.S. returned the gesture in 2012 by donating 3,000 Dogwood trees to Japan. There are two located on the shrine grounds. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Gabrielle Spalding)
