1945 Military Video in Honolulu

Monday, May 06, 2013

I thought this video from my father was really cool.

Great video of a Spontaneous Victory Parade in Honolulu in 1945. Take a look at this video-absolutely fabulous! Notice the cars and jeeps, youth. The guys in khaki or gray shirts and black ties are Navy officers or chiefs. The rest are Army or Marine. How young they all were to do what they did.

    That is so cool. They were brave souls. I still get tears in my eyes when I think what they went through. And I adore Jimmy Durante. Love the song!

    Thanks for sharing and the video gave me goose bumps. I also had tears in my eyes for all the other veterans of all our wars, some who came home to no celebrations and support (Vietnam) or kind of forgotten (Korea). All veterans are so very special and your video also reminded me of our homeless vets who need support and warm homes to go to. emoticon Thanks for touching my heart today. emoticon
Love, Chelsea
