2017 Memorial Day Ceremonies

August 24, 2017

Annually, the Hawaii Army National Guard honors those who were killed during the 1968 29th Infantry Brigade call-up and the Operation Iraqi/Enduring Freedom mobilization. There are two large pohaku (rocks) in front of the Readiness Center Building on Kalaeloa campus. Each pohaku has a plaque listing members who passed during those mobilizations.
