Officer Kealoha,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when served with the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War as a member of the 25th “Tropic Lightning” Infantry Division. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
