On December 11, 2013, about 1522 Hawaiian standard time, a Cessna 208B, N687MA, operated by Makani Kai Air ditched into the ocean near Kalaupapa, Hawaii. The flight departed from the Kalaupapa Airport on the island of Molokai bound for the Honolulu International Airport on the island of Oahu. There were eight passengers aboard. Loretta Fuddy was the only fatality in a very survivable crash.

Today is the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
I was scanning my Dad’s Hawaiian Album and these were all his friends. They all served in “I” Company of the 35th Regiment, 24th Infantry Division, Schofoeld Barracks, Hawaii in and around 1941. I’m posting these pictures in hopes that their kids and grandchildren are looking for them. Please leave me word in the comments if you made a connection. Good Luck.
My Dad was Walter J. Chamberlain Jr. He served in the Army from 1937 until 1967. In 1967 his division at Fort Carson was alerted for Vietnam. He said, “I got clipped in Italy and then again in Korea. Some Shave-Tail Butter Bar is going to get me killed in Vietnam”. So with 33 years service (including time in C.C.C.’s) he retired.
