Posted: Sep 30, 2008

The University of Hawaiʻi Army ROTC program next week will recognize 6 graduates who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. A very special dedication ceremony will take place on Thursday, October 9 at 4:00 pm at the UH Army ROTC Department at UH Mānoa‘s makai campus.

LTs Tom Blevens (Class of 1965), Frank Rodriguez (Class of 1967), Brian Kong (Class of 1969), Jeremy Wolfe (Class of 2002), Nainoa Hoe (Class of 2003), and Jonathan Brostrom (Class of 2006) gave their lives in conflicts in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
The UH Army ROTC program will dedicate a Wall of UH Fallen Warriors with each of them memorialized in a framed picture and story of their lives at the UH Army ROTC building.

It is the UH Army ROTC Program and its cadets‘ way, both past and present, of honoring the spirit and sacrifice of these Manoa Warriors who paid the supreme price for our country, made Hawaiʻi proud, and led by example for future generations of cadets.

The dedication is open to the public and all are invited to join in this celebration of these young men‘s lives. Questions about this event can be directed to LTC Rod Laszlo, 956-7766 or laszlo@hawaii.edu.
