Hawaii GOE: Supporting the Troops Every Which Way!

Hawaii DSC_0128

The Hawaii Chapter of Gathering of Eagles has been doing troop support in new and innovative ways for almost three years now!

From the first troop support rallies in Kamuela, Hawaii, through convoy welcomes and canteen operations, to their outstanding Kona Coffee support operations, they have set a pace that is amazing!

Red Hawk tells the moving story of how one man with a flag made a difference!

Every significant holiday and day of remembrance they are out waving their flags!

Their Kona Coffee operations have touched the lives of thousands of deployed Soldiers, Marines and Airmen!

Kona Coffee is considered one of the finest coffees in the world and is only grown in a select area on the Big Island of Hawaii.

U.S. Army:  Operation Warrior Wakeup

U.S. Air Force:  Operation Maka’Ala Airmen

Local farms donate the coffee to be shipped to the troops, and the Hawaiian GOE Chapter raises the funds to pay for the shipping costs.

Here’s how you can help keep the coffee flowing to the troops!
