Wahiawa is located a few miles from Mililani Town and back in the early to mid 70's Mililani High School wasn't finished so I attended Leilehua High School in Wahiawa. As I watched the Wahiawa Lion's Club Veterans Day Parade yesterday with my daughter, I immediately got caught up in memories as my old Alma Mater ROTC marched by.
My father retired from the US Navy and my son served in the US Navy aboard the USS Kitty Hawk. Veterans Day is an annual US Holiday honoring military veterans and I stood on the side flooded with memories of my father who passed away in 2004. I remembered the emotions that swept through me when I heard the war broke out and saw that the USS Kitty Hawk, with my son aboard, was in the Persian Gulf. It was his birthday.
All branches of our Military in Hawaii marched by....
I thank all who have served and are serving in the US Military.
I will continue to remember....and be thankful.
