***** SIXTY-SECOND ANNUAL MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE BY THE WAIALUA LIONS CLUB - SUNDAY, MAY 24, 2009/10:OO AM
HALEIWA BEACH PARK - WAIALUA LIONS MEMORIAL TOWER
The Waialua Lions Club, as they have done for the past Sixty-two years will pay homage to the forty-four war heroes from the North Shore, who gave their ultimate sacrifices during combat in World War II, Korean Conflict, and the Vietnam War. The Memorial Day event commencing at 10:00 AM at the Haleiwa Beach Park will pay special tribute not only to the forty-four heroes, but to the remaining Gold Star Mothers and Gold Star Spouses attending the services:
Mrs. Lois Pacolba, whose husband, Alfredo died in the Vietnam War,
Mrs. Dina Carlos, whose son, Stephen Carlos also died in the Vietnam War, and
Mrs. Roy Ocampo, whose son, Robert also died in the Vietnam War.
In addition, the next of kin of many of these heroes will be similarly recognized during the ceremony.No-where else, has a community lost so many young men in three wars and at the same time had their names enshrined in a single memorial tower with a beacon as a symbol of eternal peace and goodwill.

***** I have met your wife over the years at the commissary and at the memorial at Haleiwa Park on Memorial Day. Your name along with our other North Shore Vietnam Brothers were added to the memorial in 1986. Your names face the ocean so the sunset can warm your hearts. Thank you for giving all your todays so my family can have there tomorrows.
Aloha My Friend soon we will meet again,
John J. McGuire III
