POHAKULOA TRAINING AREA, Hawaii - Civilian employees of U.S. Army's Pohakuloa Training Area, led by Deputy Garrison Commander Robert Wright, take a break with other volunteers, members of the Waikoloa Dry Forest Recovery Project group, as they spend the day in the southwest vicinity of Waikoloa Village on the Big Island, cutting grass and weeds as a preventative measure against wildland fires. They also installed fences to protect Hawaii endangered plants and trees from ravaging wild goats and other ungulates.
