USS Hawaii Homecoming

to homecoming submarine USS Hawaii.  This was a very special occasion; because the USS Hawaii is not only state’s namesake submarine, but it also has a nick name “War Canoe”.  Because Hawaiian Outrigger Canoes were actually used as war canoes in ancient times,  this was the perfect welcome for USS Hawaii.

Here is the article from Star Advertiser about USS Hawaii’s homecoming.

And here are some photos from the event.
