Earlier Retiree News posted a photograph featuring four maintenance retireesDavid “Snake” SnakenbergCraig HarimotoJames Akau, and Kenneth Morimoto.

Several Retiree News followers emailed about Snake’s physical appearance, asking if he was ill. After his retirement, he decided to lose some weight. He lost 80 lbs. Great job Snake!

Jeffrey Hickman, Director, Public Affairs for the State Department of Defense shared an inquiry he received with Retiree News. 

SSG Lambert Lum, an Army Guard retiree, emailed his office asking for assistance. He served with the  111th Army Band as a musician and an in later years was the drum major. He is looking for any photographs of him leading the band in a parade or military ceremony. 

Lambert’s second request is interesting. Just before the 29th Infantry Brigade’s activation in May 1968, someone wrote a song “She Wore A Red Hibiscus!“. He is looking for the lyrics for this song. Anyone having photographs or the lyrics should contact him at
