Today is the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Honor the Greatest Generation at a wreath-laying ceremony on Sunday, August 16 from 5 – 6 p.m. at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl (2177 Puowaina Drive.)
Salute our fallen heroes, bring a lei for a soldier, meet Gold Star Families, sing the popular 442nd song “Wakare no Isochidori,” and enjoy the Royal Hawaiian Band. The event is organized by The Spirit of ‘45 Hawaii Committee, a non-profit non-partisan initiative to preserve the legacy of the men and women of the “Greatest Generation.”
