Several speakers acknowledged the Wai`anae Coast’s three Medal of Honor recipients: Shinyei Nagamine, Yeiki Kobashigawa, and Herbert K. Pilila`au.

Several speakers acknowledged the Pilila`au `ohana, who sat in the audience. As you can see from the photo, the Pilila`au’s are familiar faces on our Wai`anae Coast. We are so grateful for the pride they have brought to our community.

After the ceremony, Ike Mahoe, Herbert K. Pilila`au’s grand niece, wrote: “If there is anything else you would like to know about my grand uncle or our family please feel free to contact me at Jmahoe@gmail.com. Mahalo for your time and all your kind words today. Our family appriciates you all.”

Mahalo nui loa to ALL VETERANS, RESERVISTS, AND ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY MEN & WOMEN. We are eternally grateful for your sacrifice!!
