    NAVFAC EXWC hosts Wave Energy Test Site blessing ceremony

    MARINE CORPS BASE HAWAII- Kahu Sherman Thompson, performs a traditional Hawaiian Blessing at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC) Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) Blessing Ceremony, July 26, which included untying the ceremonial Maile Lei. "It is certainly in a spirit of Aloha and Ohana that we have joined together with many, many partnerships and a consortium of the Wave Energy Test Site and what has allowed us to come to this time and place, this aina as we know in our land," said Thompson. "So we come this day with much, much aloha and thanksgiving and especially now to invoke the blessings of our kahuna for those who have come before us. That indeed allows us now to benefit from this aina, to allow new ways of providing energy for our people and for this land. Let the favor of the almighty power Divine be upon us and prosper for us the work of our hands. It was the work of many hands joined together and the ongoing work of many hands to continue to collaborate and to bring renewable energy a reality." U.S. Navy Photo by Michael Ard (Released)
