The USMC Birthday and Flag Raising at Ewa Field


The USMC Birthday and Flag Raising at Ewa Field went off great today! The
Marines are 235 years old.

US Marines in BDU (Battle Dress Uniform)  and with bugler came out. This was
the FIRST US Marine Corps birthday flag raising at Ewa Field in well over
half a century!

The Marines were on the dot raising the US and USMC flag at 8 AM as the
bugler played the traditional "To The Colors". A total Class Act.

Rep. Kym Pine was there and spoke to the "troops". Tom Berg shot great video
which you will be seeing soon, and photographer Toni Russ took great photos.
Ewa Beach Lion Sam Fisk was there too.

We are looking forward to greeting the Pearl Harbor veterans this year with
a special Aloha ceremony for them on December 5, 2010. Hope you can make it-
there will be a LOT of SPECIAL VIP's coming out this year.
