Electronics Technician 2nd Class James Johnston, originally from Kaneohe, is part of a six-man team representing Naval Air Facility Misawa at the 63rd annual Sapporo Snow Festival which opened Feb. 6 in Japan. The 'Sapporo Six' are attempting to sculpt the bust of the Navy's famous 'Lone Sailor' statue (the original is in Washington, D.C.). Johnston is chipping away at the 6-by-6- foot block of snow in temperatures considerably lower than Hawaii's. Photo by Senior CPO Daniel Sanford.
