Wehart Hosea

Thanks for sending your digital photo for our Reunion

excerpts from email 6-2-09 by Wehart
I'm hoping to attend the reunion, probably in Las Vegas. Can't really say at this time, I travel about 90% of the time all over the country and overseas. Presently I'm assigned to Quantico MCB, VA but I technically work for the Dept of Navy, SPAWAR ATLANTIC in Charleston, SC. I'm assigned to the Marines as the SME (Subject Matter Expert) in SatCom (Satellite Communications). I've recently been asked to come back to Dept of Army as a IT Network Engineer just up the road from Quantico MCB at Ft. Belvoir, VA. Closer to DC and lots of traffic.

Ten Que for your update...currently looking for digital(jpg files) photos of other classmates and a short bio...plz send info to above email address...Aloha

By Rick Egged President of Waikiki Improvement Association
I have been with the Waikiki Improvement Association (WIA) for the past nine years, happy to have a job supporting the community I love. WIA is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to making Waikiki a great place to invest, work, live and play. For almost 40 years - our anniversary is in October - WIA has worked with public officials, battled in the courts, lobbied in the Legislature, cleaned the beach, patrolled the streets of Waikiki, produced events for the community and much more.
Its members represent the major stakeholders in Waikiki - businesses of all types - the visitor industry, property owners and professionals. As the leading advocate for Waikiki, they work in partnership with business and government to identify needs, develop strategies, shape public policy and implement programs to strengthen the physical and economic vitality of Waikiki and its role in the state’s economy
