After the recent Hawaii Army National Guard Change of Command, BG Kenneth Hara and BG Moses Kaoiwi took the stage to sign with the musical group Na Koa. Both generals grew up in Hilo and they sang the Hawaii Island song, Hilo March.

Joseph Kapaeau Ae‘a, a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band composed the song in 1881, and bandmaster Henry Berger arranged it as a march. It has been adopted as the island song of the Big Island, Hawai’i.
