Yokota leaders participate in DoDEA facility groundbreaking ceremony

(From left) Dr. Jaqueline Ferguson, Department of Defense Education Activity district superintendent, James Wolff, United States Army Corps of Engineers construction division chief, and Col. Ryan Vetter, 374th Mission Support Group commander, break ground for the construction site of a new superintendent office, Sept. 1, 2023, at Yokota Air Base, Japan. The ceremony, also known as a Ji-Chin-Sa'i which means "land-appeasing ceremony," is a Shinto ritual held prior to commencement of a construction project. The ritual includes praying for workers' safety during the construction and owners' and occupants' prosperity beyond completion of the project. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Hannah Bean)
