HALEIWA (KHNL) - It's a new program started by a North Shore Elementary and Middle school called "Adopt-A-Soldier" The students, have a unique way of getting to know the "Wolfhounds," Soldiers of the 2/27th Infantry Battalion.

Before they set sail on the Ho'o Nanea catamaran, students from Sunset Beach Christian School hold hands in prayer with 8 Schofield Barracks Soldiers they adopted. The trip on the catamaran is a token of appreciation for their bravery.

With their deployment to Iraq less than a month away, it's the perfect gift for these soldiers. They enjoy a ride along the north shore of Oahu, and spending time with their new adopted families. The memories from this ocean outing is something the soldiers will take with them overseas.

"Doing stuff like this now really helps you know, ease the mind and the soul being out here," says "Wolfhound" Soldier of the 2/27th Infantry Battalion Jason Kreamer.
