SHOULDERING THE LOAD TOGETHER. Fireman 1st Class Jalicando Mamolo, of the Philippine Navy, administers oral vitamins to a cow while Capt. Kevin Hinson, a U.S. Army veterinarian assigned to the Japan District Veterinary Command, assists during a free veterinary clinic held February 26, 2008 in Nabalawag village in Midsayap town in North Cotabato province in Mindanao as part of the humanitarian assistance programs of Balikatan 2008.
