Spc. Henry Caldera, 643 Company, 84th Engineer Battalion, 130th Eng. Brigade, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, holds a rescued green sea turtle, here, Dec. 10. Caldera was kayaking with Sharon Nakai, an instructor with Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, when they encountered the young turtle, tangled in crab nets in the Anahulu River. Their quick response helped save the turtle from being strangled underwater by the netting. The animal was immediately transferred to the care of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service.
