Malama Mokapu: MCB Hawaii cleans, clears

Young Marines and Marines from Headquarters Battalion and Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay help carry a log. More than 20 Young Marines from units in Florida, Kentucky and Washington joined the Pyramid Rock Young Marines and active-duty Marines to clean Fort Hase Beach, Dec. 4, 2013. Young Marine units annually travel to Hawaii to commemorate the anniversary of the Dec. 7 attacks by participating in a parade and wreath laying. This year they also participated in the basewide clean-up, Malama Ka Aina. Young Marine Sgt. Maj. Dakota Richter, the National Young Marine of the Year, from Florence, Ky., said the beach clean-up was the best form of community service and the group is grateful for the base’s hospitality. Young Marine Sgt. Maj. Storme DiGiovanni, 17, of Kailua, said the clean-up was a great opportunity for the Young Marines to come together for an activity, especially helping preserve the nature of Hawaii’s beaches.

  • Seaman Brad Monroe, a hospital corpsman with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 362, assists in a clean-up of Fort Hase Beach, Oct. 10. “It’s important to take care of the environment,” said the 25-year-old native of Southaven, Miss. “We should keep the city trash where the city is.”  Monroe plans to be transitioned to Marine Air-Ground Task Force medical after his unit is deactivated. “The ‘Ugly Angels’ are legendary,” Monroe said. “The end of one place is a good beginning for another.” More than 30 members of HMH-362 spent several hours cleaning up Fort Hase Beach and Mokapu Central Drainage Channel. The Ugly Angels collected and removed a great deal of trash including four 5-ton vehicle tires, two microwaves, a 32-inch flat screen TV, a video game console, a bicycle, a fire extinguisher, a crutch, a safety cone, an ironing board and many bottles. As the squadron nears deactivation, many of the Ugly Angels are currently on leave, while others are already training for their next duty. The remaining Ugly Angels took some time to help the base by arranging this clean-up. “We’re lucky that we were able to take a little break in our training here and do something positive to contribute to the base and this beautiful environment that we have here,” said Maj. Dan Rubel, the executive officer of HMH-362.
