Passersby Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni Building One on July 16 may have had to look twice when they saw the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's bright red castle flag flying over the Marine headquarters.

Marine Col. Robert Boucher, commanding officer, MCAS Iwakuni, raised the USACE flag over the headquarters building with Lee Seeba, former resident engineer, Iwakuni Resident Office, under the joyful eyes of several Iwakuni Resident Office employees.

Boucher flew the engineer castle in Iwakuni as a "thank you" to the Corps' Iwakuni Resident Office for a job well done, after completing a particularly intricate project by deadline.

Bert Pechhold, current resident engineer, Iwakuni Resident Office, said the transformation that is occurring at MCAS Iwakuni could not be possible without the leadership and support from Boucher and his staff.

"This achievement symbolizes that spirit of cooperation and partnership between the Army and Marines," Pechhold said.

Seeba is currently the area engineer for the Japan District’s Okinawa Area Office.
