This morning Lt. Patrick Sweeten told us about a great event coming up. The 30th Annual Combined Military Band Appreciation Concert at Hawaii Theatre on May 16, 2015 at 6 p.m., featuring all five Oahu military bands. The concert is free and open to the general public and is in support of May’s Military Appreciation Month. This year’s concert is especially impactful as it will consist of a tribute to Veterans and their families from World War II through today.
As 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII in the Pacific, they will capture the sacrifices and accomplishments in song and audio/visual media. It is sure to be a very emotional and inspirational evening.
The U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet Band also joined us in studio to give us a preview of what you will see on May 16.
