Kicking it for a cause

Flags from six different countries adorn the grounds of the French school Kessel in downtown Djibouti Dec. 9, 2016. Each flag represented the nationality of the soccer players whose teams gathered there for a friendly soccer tournament supporting the Kick for Nick Foundation. The non-profit foundation was established in 2006 by the family of Pfc. Nicholas Madaras, an avid soccer player and youth coach who was killed while serving in Iraq.
