Military Matters

Deyson Ken "Dice" Cariaga: Hawai'i's fallen hero

“He will always be the light in my life,” said Theresa Inouye, as she grabbed a silver mini-flashlight out of her purse and put it down on the table next to her keychain, which had a dog tag attached to it. [More]

Mission: The 'lighter' side
by Chuck Cordill, Military Matters co-editor

Kalamalama’s Military Matters section tries to recognize and serve HPU’s students in uniform and their associates and families. Our nation is in the midst of a war, and even as editors change, we will continue our coverage of the brave men and women who stand in harm’s way in its defense.

In the tradition of “laughter being the best medicine,” we also want to provide looks at the lighter side of military life. No doubt there have been jokes and humor among the ranks since armies were first organized. Humor has a way of easing the pain, of making a seemingly impossible situation bearable. Humor heals, it consoles, it relieves stress, and it breaks the monotony of routine life. Humor can make for us an island when all around us seems to go to hell. And best of all, it makes us laugh.

Service members who have humorous anecdotes, military expressions, acronyms, or off-beat observations are welcome to contribute. E-mail your contributions to kalamalama@hpu.edu and we’ll run it past the editor. And hey, do it ASAP!
