Folks from Andersen Air Force Base are sprucing up campuses, painting classroom walls and freshening up schoolyards through the government of Guam's Adopt-A-School program during the month of August.

"I've never really painted a school before and it's actually fun," Sr. Airman Javon Shipman, 644th Combat Communication Squadron cyber surety journeyman told States News Service. "It's something different. Everybody on base should get involved."
