Soldiers Return Home From Iraq!

What an amazing day today was, as we welcomed home Hawaii's own 25th Infantry Division back from the Middle East.

I know the indescribable joy our soldiers must have felt today as they reunited with family and friends. I hope some of you had an opportunity to participate in the welcoming ceremony at Wheeler Army Airfield this afternoon to show our appreciation to these brave men and women.

For those who couldn't make it, this homecoming provides a wonderful opportunity for each of us to pause and give thanks to the selfless sacrifice these brave soldiers have made to serve us and our country.
