To honor the sacrifices of America’s servicemen and servicewomen, Damien Memorial School’s hula halau performed at a Veteran’s Day luncheon.
The festive event was held at the Kapolei facility of U.S. Vets, a nonprofit corporation that provides counseling, employment assistance, case management, drug- and alcohol-free housing and other services for homeless and at-risk veterans and their families.
Performing with the students was Emily Porter, wife of Damien President and CEO Wes Reber Porter.
“I know the kids were happy to dance for these vets who worked hard for us,” said Kumu Hula Sky Perkins Gora. “We are very grateful for all they have done and what they stand for – our country.”
