Video: Guardsmen Make Lei for Memorial Day
Video by Tech. Sgt. Andrew Jackson
Package of the annual tradition of over fifty thousand lei being placed on veteran’s graves on Memorial Day and a group of air guardsmen who donated their time to help make some of those of those lei. As a community service project sponsored by the 109 AOG, This idea was conceived in response to the Office of Veterans Services (OVS) annual request for leis at both state cemeteries, and the available plumeria flowers from the trees near the Officer’s Club. The Guards men and their families made over 300 lei. There are sound bites from Tech Sgt. Mugungha Kang, 199 Fighter Squadron and Tech Sgt. Kalani Kaikala, 154 Wing. Also available in high definition.
