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.
"The memorial stone dedication will be an awe-inspiring display of remembrance and patriotism, and I hope the Honolulu community will join us at Punchbowl for this very special event," said retired U.S. Navy Admiral and former Pacific Commander Thomas Fargo, co-chairman of the 2012 Medal of Honor Convention's host committee.
The memorial stone dedication is one of several events taking place during the Medal of Honor Convention, an annual event being hosted in Honolulu this year. The weeklong gathering is Oct. 1-6.
