Sgt. 1st Class Jay Rivera demonstrates tooth-brushing techniques to children at the Tubagus Pangeling Islamic Education Institution in Depok, Indonesia on June 12. Rivera and about 45 U.S. and Indonesian troops visited the orphanage and school to donate dental hygiene supplies, food, school supplies, sports equipment, and health text books. They also gave the children dental hygiene and first-aid classes and played games with them. The Soldiers belong to Hawaii-based 322nd Civil Affairs Brigade and 1984th U.S. Army Reserve Hospital, and the Army ROTC program. The Soldiers are among the U.S. and Indonesian military personnel taking part in Garuda Shield, the latest in a continuing series of exercises designed to strengthen military-to-military cooperation while focusing on international peace support operations. Rivera is from Waipahu, Hawaii.
