employee spotlight: noriyuki satoAaron Pylinski | community writer
Most people talk about the bar at the Eagle’s Nest as Nori’s more so than its normal moniker for a good reason. Nori has been tending bar there for the last 17 years with a smile on his face and a passion for his work that hasn’t gone unnoticed. His smile is inviting and his humility a lesson for those of us who wish to take a little bit of Japan back to the States.
If you’ve been to the Eagle’s Nest after 4:30 PM for a frosty adult beverage then you know the man behind the bar. Nori has been a mainstay at the Eagle’s Nest for about as long as some of our young Servicemembers have been on this planet. Although he’s not originally from Iwakuni, he is happy to call this place home. He has no issues helping those of us who are far away from home accept this place as ours and leave Japan with pleasant memories.
We were able to take a few minutes out of Nori’s time and get to know a little about what makes our humble bar keep such an outstanding individual in the community.
