The Importance of Remembrance
Memorial Day at Memorial Park in Kaunakakai
On Saturday morning, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) held a service at Memorial Park in Kaunakakai to remind the community why Memorial Day is celebrated every year. Guests paid their respects to those passed by planting flags in front of the monument inscribed with names of soldiers lost in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.
“Freedom is not free,” reiterated guest speaker Pastor Randy Manley. “We must never forget the sacrifice these men and women have given for our freedom.”
