Petty Officer 3rd Class Jack Ndaiga, center, assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 74, plays soccer with villagers in Sankuri, Kenya, April 22. NMCB 74 Seabees are drilling several water wells in the region as part of a Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa project to provide clean drinking water and strengthen ties between U.S. and Kenya. Ndaiga, who lived in Nairobi, Kenya, until he as 21 years old, joined the Navy shortly after moving to the United States. When not conducting camp maintenance, he helps bridge the language gap between the deployed Seabees and the villagers here.
