We return to the Wings Over the Pacific show at the Joint Base Hickam and Pearl Harbor for the non Blue Angels portion of our series.  Here is the MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle that is designed to withstand improvised explosive device (IED) attacks and ambushes. The people in the photo show just how huge this armored vehicle is. We deployed more than 12,000 MRAPs in the Iraq War and the War in Afghanistan. There are various models of the MRAP which weigh from 14 to 18 tons and are 9 feet high.

With Hurricane Ana approaching Hawaii I thought it was a good time to grab a sunset photo from the photo archives. Here is hoping that this sunset makes the storm keep far south and spare us from its wrath. I hope everybody stays safe this weekend and that sunny days return shortly.

We conclude our CANstruction 2014 series with Bowers + Kubota Consulting and their “Freeze out hunger so our keiki CAN dream” display. Nothing beats a giant cone of shave ice on a hot Hawaii day especially for our keiki (children). Many of us have happy childhood memories enjoying this onolicious treat. All children deserve such innocent and happy memories and dreams and they shouldn’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from. Join us to freeze out hunger. Our series has come to an end but you still have until Oct 18 to see the display at Pearlridge Center Uptown and vote for your favorite display. One can one vote and all vote cans and structure cans go the Hawaii Foodbank to help fight hunger in Hawaii.
