LEGAZPI, Philippines - U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Carl Watson, left, breaks open a coconut April 24 during the Kudkod-Paga, Turo-Gata contest at the Magayan Festival alongside Philippine Army Pfc. Bryldon Alforte in Legazpi City, Albay Province, Philippines. Kudkod-Paga, Turo-Gata means “coconut milk extraction contest,” and is a contest during the annual festival to determine who can produce the most milk in a given time. Watson and Alforte are part of Exercise Baltikatan, an annual bilateral exercise between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and United States armed forces that strengthens the bond and improves interoperability between the two countries. Alforte is an operations noncommissioned officer, and Watson is a naval builder.
