Aloha! This week we enjoyed many victories on Maui - sunny weather, breathtaking views, and fun company. Our mail included a thank you letter from a Boy Scout in Michigan. I donated worn US flags from Pearl Harbor for his Flag Retirement Ceremony. He wrote,
"Being historically relevant, they were the centerpiece of our Flag Retirement Ceremony. The road to making this project happy was a long and hard one, and you made it that much easier for me. Many people helped with this project, but you were one of the biggest factors. You see, I didn't just want the flags, but the flags that could tell a story and you delivered."
Wow - a Boy Scout who honors our country's symbol and writes thank you letter!
I also received an invitation to an Eagle Scout Ceremony aboard the USS Missouri - how cool is that to honor a young leader on the decks of a trusted veteran (and movie star)!
This past week, Oahu hosted a special group of honorable men - the Medal of Honor society. From this link,
Every year, the Congressional Medal of Honor Society holds a convention in a Host city for those living, distinguished service members who received the Medal of Honor. For the first week of October 2012, Honolulu, Hawaii, is honored to be the Host city. Through a variety of public and private events, including a public block party with concert, visits to local schools and military installations, and a gala dinner, Recipients will feel the ‘Ohana spirit all around them.
On Saturday morning, I am attending the special book signing, giving me the opportunity to meet our national heroes. I'll post pictures in the coming week.
How was your week?
Kim in Hawaii
