Kaila Wang wins Outstanding Youth Volunteer for Veterans. (Pictured with General Patraeus)

On June 29, 2012 at DAR’s Continental Congress National Defense night in Washington, D.C., Hawaii’s Kaila Wang was recognized as the winner of the Outstanding Youth Volunteer Award for 2012.  This award recognizes a young person who has provided outstanding service to veterans and has served as a role model for other young volunteers.  During her acceptance speech, Kaila described her service to veterans in Hawaii and her desire to eventually be a veteran herself.  Kaila volunteers as a living history re-enactor and helps veterans at the VA Center for Aging. 

Wreath

  A floral wreath was presented at the Honolulu Mayor’s Memorial Day Ceremony, National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific on May 28, 2012.   The floral tributes recognized and honored those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our county.  In Mayor Peter B. Carlisle's message he stated “Duty, Honor, Country..."  Perhaps these words rang loudly in the hearts of our heroes as they battled in foreign lands.  Because of men and women like these, who placed duty, honor and country above their own safety and gave their lives so we may enjoy freedom, we are the greatest country in the world.”
