Mayor Mufi Hannemann of the City and County of Honolulu speaks to military service members and guests about sacrifices made by American service members every day during the opening ceremony of the 22nd Annual Hawaii Military Appreciation Month held at the Pacific Aviation Museum on Pearl Harbor’s Ford Island. "I know I speak for the 500,000 people who call Honolulu home, thank you," said Hannemann to the nearly 500 service members in attendance, including the highest ranking member in the Pacific, Navy Adm. Timothy J. Keating, commander, U.S. Pacific Command.
