25 January 2013 marks the 5th anniversary of the website for NR Subase Pearl Harbor Det. 716.
The 30th of May 2012 marked the 35th anniversary of Subase Pearl Harbor Det 716.
On the 28th of September 2013 the popurlarity of the Subase Website grew in excess of 5,100 visitors per month.
Subase shipmates dig deep to help support a fellow veteran who was victim of a tragic hit-and-run accident.
When this website was created it was intended to be simply a place where memories could be shared, a place where former Subase Pearl Detachment 716 shipmates could view photos of those they shared a good portion of their lives with and read stories of events long past. It has become that and more.
After several months of building and editing this website and reading stories from shipmates about our men and women in uniform still serving their country and stories of men and women in uniform who have given their lives in the name of freedom, the realization that the website should have a greater purpose was apparent. Therefore the decision was made to dedicate this site to our men and women in uniform still serving and to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
To our shipmates still serving, we the former members of Subase Pearl Detachment 716 salute you. We thank you for your sacrifice and service.
God Bless America.
Recently this site shifted gears and began focusing its attention and resources toward honoring those brave men and women who served and fought during WW II.
A page already created, and part of the site, called “The Last of Our WW II Vets” was used to write and publish the stories of those who served during the 4 ½ years of the European and Pacific war.
After having successfully written a few stories for this page the decision was made to make an attempt to include those who served in Korea and Viet Nam as well. Since the Korean War Vets are only a few years younger than our WW II Vets and the Viet Nam Vets, with so many that have serious medical problems due to the war are rapidly dying off.
If you are a Veteran of any of these wars and are willing to share your story or know of a Veteran who might be willing to be added to his/her page of honor please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
