Heroes hailed across America A Waialua man's name is added to the memorial for Vietnam vets By ‘Alohi Bikle /

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, May 29, 2012 LAST UPDATED: 02:02 a.m. HST, May 29, 2012

BRUCE ASATO / BASATO@STARADVERTISER.COM A U.S. Coast Guard H-65 Dolphin Helicopter performs a flyover.

After 48 years, Grace Kuewa received closure Monday. Her brother, Navy Airman Albert Kalahana Kuewa, a Waialua High School graduate, was one of 10 to have their names inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., two weeks ago, bringing the total to 58,282. "His death left an emotional scar," Kuewa said Monday at the Governor's Memorial Day Ceremony, "but I can rest easier now that he has received such an honor." Hundreds showed up for Monday's program at the Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery in Kaneohe, which included opening remarks from Maj. Gen. Darryll Wong, state adjutant general; a parade of flags and presentation of floral lei; a rifle salute by the Hawaii Air National Guard; a flyover by a Coast Guard Dolphin helicopter; and music from the 111th Army Band. On Sept. 18, 1964, Airman Kuewa, 22, was aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ranger in the Gulf of Tonkin, off the shore of Vietnam, when he was hit and killed by a moving plane, an incident that should have made him a casualty of war. However, Grace Kuewa, 65, said the military logged her brother's death differently, stating that he walked into a plane's propeller, which is why he never received the honor he should have. Until now. Airman Kuewa's high school classmate and war buddy Benjamin Ishida, 68, found out about the discrepancies in military records as to how his friend died when he returned home from war. For the past 46 years, Ishida, who lives in Wahiawa, has worked with the Kuewa family to get Kuewa's death classified as a casualty of war and his name on the war memorial in Washington. More recently

he got help from U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka and Clay Park, director of veterans programs at Papa Ola Lokahi, a nonprofit agency that focuses on Hawaiian health issues. On Monday, Ishida represented the Kuewa family in Washington at a ceremony for the new additions to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. "It has been a great journey for Ben," Grace said. "Myself, along with the rest of my family, are so thankful for what he has gone through to get my brother's name on that wall." In his keynote address, Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz said President Barack Obama has asked federal, state and local officials to honor Vietnam veterans with "appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities" this year, the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the war. Schatz acknowledged Akaka, who was present, and Ishida for their efforts to get Kuewa's name on the wall. And he recognized Grace Kuewa and the rest of her family in attendance for the sacrifices that her brother, whom he called a "noteworthy hero," made during the war. He said efforts are under way to have Kuewa's name engraved on the Hawaii Korean and Vietnam War Memorial on the grounds of the state Capitol. "It is the ultimate honor to finally have his name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in D.C.," said Grace Kuewa. "Hopefully, one day I'll make it out there to see it."

Jill Stephenson, mother of fallen Ranger, Ben Kopp, is unexpectedly reunited with the casualty assistance officer who was with her when Ben died in Washington D.C. two years earlier. The chance encounter came during the 2011 Wreaths Across America Escort to Arlington, while visiting West Point. WAA photo by Joseph Andrew Lee.

25 May 2012 They say old Soldiers never die. In the case of Corporal Benjamin Kopp, this is turning out to be true in many ways. Ben was shot and killed during combat operations in Afghanistan. He was an organ donor, and his sacrifices continued. His heart was given to a family friend named Judy Meikle, who was 57 years old. The transplant was successful. Ben’s mom is Jill Stephenson. Jill is a strong woman and herself an inspiration. Yesterday, Jill Stephenson published: "I want to wish a special Happy Birthday to Judy Meikle today. In case you don't know, Judy is the recipient of my wonderful son Ben Kopp's big strong Ranger heart. Judy received Ben's heart almost three years ago and today celebrates turning 60!! I am blessed to know her and call her a friend. She is breathing proof of what the gift of life means when we think not just of ourselves when we die. Ben lives on her beating heart. Happy, happy day to you, Ms. Judy. Love you~" And so Ben’s heart beats on, inspiring more people with every passing day. And his name lives on in the Kopp-Etchells Effect.

But even more than in his heart and name, Ben’s spirit lives on through a powerful example of courage, sacrifice, and generosity. There is more to the Kopp-Etchells Effect than just helicopters in the night. The Effect, the Heart of a Ranger, has become a symbol of courage and spirit to be revered.

Hawaii to host 2013 Pro Bowl By Ferd Lewis POSTED: 09:25 a.m. HST, May 30, 2012

DENNIS ODA / DODA@STARADVERTISER.COM In this file photo from Jan. 29, fans share the sentiment of keeping the Pro Bowl in Hawaii after 2012.

After months of doubt, the 2013 Pro Bowl will be played in Honolulu, the NFL announced today. It will be held Jan. 27 and shown on NBC. “The players have made it clear through the NFL Players Association that they would like the opportunity to continue to play the Pro Bowl in Hawaii,” NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson said in a release. "We will support the players on this initiative to improve the Pro Bowl. We have had many discussions with the players in recent years about the Pro Bowl and they recognize that the quality of the game has not been up to NFL standards. We look forward to working with the players toward the goal of improving the competitiveness of this season’s game.” The game has been held at Aloha Stadium every year except 2010 since 1980.

HONOLULU MUSEUM OF ART PARTICIPATES IN BLUE STAR MUSEUMS Museum one of 1,500 across country to offer free admission to military families this summer; and presents photo exhibition focused on those who have served HONOLULU, HAWAII (May 24, 2012)—The Honolulu Museum of Art announced that for the third year it is participating in Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense.

As part of the program, the museum is one of six Hawai‘i institutions to offer free admission to all active-duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Across the country, more than 1,500 museums are participating in Blue Star Museums, with leadership support provided by MetLife Foundation through Blue Star Families. The other participating Hawai‘i museums are: the Hawai‘i State Art Museum and Iolani Palace in Honolulu; the Lyman Museum and Mission House in Hilo, Hawai‘i Island; the Laupahoehoe Train Museum in Laupahoehoe, Hawai‘i Island; and the Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum in Puunene, Maui.

“The Honolulu Museum of Art is honored to again be part of this program that connects the military with museums,” says Stephan Jost, director of the Honolulu Museum of Art. “We gratefully open our arms to service men and women and their families. Relaxing in front of priceless works of art in one of the most beautiful settings in Honolulu for free is the least we can do for a group of people who are feeling the stress of our country’s current conflicts.”

To deepen its relationship with the military community, the museum will present this fall Courage and Strength: Portraits of Those Who Have Served. The exhibition features the work of five internationally acclaimed photographers who have created portraits that focus on service men and women. The artists are Nina Berman; Ashley Gilbertson; Peter Hapak; Tim Hetherington, who was killed while on assignment in Libya last year; and Suzanne Opton. The exhibition runs Sept. 6 to Jan. 6, and admission will be free for military personnel, with ID, and their families.

“Through Blue Star Museums, the arts community is extending a special invitation to military families to enjoy more than 1,500 museums this summer,” said NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman. “This is both an opportunity to thank military families for their service and sacrifice, as well as a chance to create connections between museums and these families that will continue throughout the year. Especially for families with limited time together, those on a limited budget, and ones that have to relocate

frequently, Blue Star Museums offers an opportunity to enjoy one another and become more fully integrated into a community.”

“As we enter the third consecutive year of the Blue Star Museums program, we are happy to provide an opportunity for our nation’s service members and their families to connect with our national treasures,” said Blue Star Families CEO Kathy Roth-Duquet. “Through this distinctive collaboration between Blue Star Families, the National Endowment for the Arts and more than 1,500 museums across the United States, military families have an unparalleled opportunity to visit some of the country’s finest museums for free.” This year, more than 1,500 museums in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa are taking part in the initiative.
