"Farewell to Thee"

Following Hawaiian tradition, Sailors honour men killed during the 7 December 1941 Japanese attack on Naval Air Station Kaneohe, Oahu. The casualties had been buried on 8 December. This ceremony took place sometime during the following months, possibly on Memorial Day, 31 May 1942. See Photo # 80-G-32854 for a photograph of the 8 December 1941 burial ceremonies.
