4th of July in Hawaii

In Hawaii people don’t make as big of a deal about the Independence day of the United States, that is probably due to the large Asian population living in Hawaii. They seem to make a bigger deal out of New Year’s Eve than they do the 4th of July. So this year I went to celebrate the 4th of July with some people who really know how to party…the service men and women of the Marine Corps. stationed at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. For the last few years I have been coming to Kaneohe to celebrate the 4th of July because every year the MCCS puts on the Kaneohe Bayfest. This year I watched the fireworks while sitting under the wing of a P3 airplane and next to a Marine helicopter. Now that’s something you don’t do everyday!
