Military Matters    
   

Family support group ask for community involvement

When soldiers are deployed for war they go through rigorous training to prepare for battle. This includes sitting through hours of classes about bugs and diseases, protocol for POW’s, and what to do if you’re captured. They also have to complete basic combat training before going into theater. Their families, on the other hand, are not well prepared for soldiers’ deployment and are often confused about the process and the military in general.

Gutten Tag and Aloha!

When we talk about Germany, we think of beer, soccer, and Oktoberfest. But that is not all Germany has to offer. The Hawaiians knew that. Ever heard of Spreckelsville? Or of Isenberg Street? Or even Barber’s Point on O‘ahu?
