Here is a tribute to all of the men and women
who defended our freedom so many years ago.
Notes from the owner of the video: 65 Years Ago my Dad shot this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki capturing spontaneous celebrations that broke out upon first hearing news of the Japanese surrender. Kodachrome 16mm film: God Bless Kodachrome, right? I was able to find an outfit (mymovietransfer.com) to do a much superior scan of this footage to what I had previously posted, so I re-did this film and replaced the older version There are more still images from this amazing day, in color, at discoveringhawaii.com
Hopefully many in the newer generations will catch the spirit
of those common people who made America the greatest country to ever exist.
I hope you had an incredible Independence Day!
God Bless you my friends, Bob
