TEST Hawaii Five-0 crew angers WWII veterans at Punchbowl, Puppy farm defendants guilty
It was the "ultimate disrespect" that left their "blood boiling." That is how organizers of a ceremony for World War II veterans at the National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific at Punchbowl describe the conduct of a production crew from the hit television series Hawaii Five-0.
Twenty-four WWII veterans, 23 of them Pearl Harbor survivors, were at Punchbowl cemetary Friday, December 9. Their visit to the cemetary was part of a trip organized by the Denver based The Greatest Generations Foundation to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
While at Punchbowl the vets were honored for their service and given time to visit grave markers of comrades killed in combat.
As the vets entered the cemetary they saw a team from Hawaii Five-0 preparing to shoot a scene for an upcoming episode.
