HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Join more than 50 Medal of Honor recipients, local military and veterans community members on Oct. 3 at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific for a ceremony remembering 32 of America's bravest heroes who are interred at the cemetery.
Living medal recipients will dedicate a memorial stone at the ceremony, which will be 10:30 a.m. to noon. It is open to the public and admission is free.
