Birds of Paradise

With a relative returning from combat operations today, we wanted to give a big thanks to the US military. The military has a strong presence in Hawaii, particularly on the island of Oahu.

We say, “Thank you!” for the service, security, and support they provide to us on the islands and across the globe.
