U.S. Navy CE1 Jonathan McGrath bumps fists with children after the ground breaking ceremony at Esperanza Elementary School in support of KAMANDAG in Casiguran, Aurora, Philippines, Sept. 15, 2017. Bilateral exercises such as KAMANDAG increase the ability of the United States and the Philippines to rapidly respond and work together during real world terrorist or humanitarian crises, in order to accomplish the mission, support the local population and help mitigate human suffering. McGrath is the project supervisor for Esperanza Elementary School, and is a native of Syracuse, New York. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Matthew J. Bragg)
