My sainted father was a career US Air Force officer. One of his many assignments was Hickam Airforce Base in Honolulu in the late 1950's. We traveled over the Pali many times as we toured the island of Oahu. What a thrill...!!!ReplyDelete
You're right, John, it is a thrill to see, and I was fortunate to see such sights many times when I was stationed at Pearl. I loved living in Hawaii, and couldn't understand why some people called living there living on "The Rock."Delete
