This is a photo of the rock band called the Minutemen. They were from Hilo, Hawai‘i and played in the late 60s. They modeled themselves after Paul Revere and the Raiders, a very popular band of the time. The name Minutemen foretold the future because two of the band members became long time members of the Hawai‘iNational Guard.

Second from the left is Greg Navarro, a chief master sergeant who retired from the 291st Combat Communications Squadron, Hawai‘i Air National Guard, in Hilo. First on the right is Wayne Yoshioka, a lieutenant colonel who retired from the Hawai‘i Army National Guard. Wayne served in several positions including the State Department of Defense’s public affairs officer.
