school needs help hosting Marines who recently returned from
Iraq with a Memorial Day luncheon
A McKinley High School teacher
and her students will hold a Memorial Day Luncheon to welcome
back the Kaneohe Marines who recently returned from Iraq.
"They were the ones who
were fighting in Fallujah, which was very tragic," she said.
The battle for Fallujah, a rebel stronghold, involved weeks of
bloody urban combat.
The Kaneohe Marines also lost 27 men when a helicopter crashed
in January, the deadliest incident for Marines since the 1983
bombing of Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon."
She is asking for donations
from the public to cover the 175 to 400 meals for the soldiers
and their immediate families who may attend.
You can go to the Honolulu Star Bulletin's web site at
to learn more about this and how you can donate to this cause.
