I was privileged to speak at the closing ceremonies for Pacific Unity 14-8 last week in Mount Hagen, Papua New Guinea. A team of Engineer Airmen from the Hawaii Air National Guard’s 154th Civil Engineer Squadron and members of Public Affairs, Comptroller, and Medical Airmen from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam’s 15th Wing spent a little over three weeks constructing new girls dorms at the Togoba Secondary School in Mount Hagen.
These Airmen were an inspiration to me, and the bonds of friendship they built during their time there will have long-lasting impact. Because of them, thousands of girls in the Central Highlands will now receive an education. Well done Engineers!
