I received word from a fellow military spouse about Air Force Captain Reid Nishizuka who, along with three others, was killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan. Nishizuka was a local boy from Kailua and would be coming back to the island to be laid to rest at Punchbowl.
My friend and I took our kids and lined up along with hundreds of others to welcome him home and to thank him for the ultimate sacrifice.
This grips my heart. I am so proud of all of you for your loving, honorable farewell… Love, Mom
These images are so powerful… thank you for sharing.
wow! I wish I would have heard about this. Amazing!
