    Sergeant Steven A. Bouquet, a Comanche, Texas native and fire direction controlman with Alpha Battery, 1st Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment, leads Marines in a haka, or war cry, during a powhiri, or formal Maori welcome ceremony, here, June 10. A platoon-sized detachment of Marines recently arrived in New Zealand to strengthen military relations between the two nations. They are currently scheduled to perform in ceremonies in Wellington on June 14, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the arrival of Marines in New Zealand during World War II.
