Free concert at Waikiki Shell honors Vietnam veterans

Vietnam veterans and their families were treated to a free concert on Wednesday, May 24.

Singer Tony Orlando headlined the event at the Waikiki Shell. Local artist Gordon Freitas also performed.

Orlando’s song, “Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Ole Oak Tree,” topped the charts in 1973 and became an anthem of hope, homecoming, reunion, and renewal.

Admission was free, and all ages were welcome.
