The community event is a way for the public to understand the military better, and for the military to get to know the community better.

“This is a great opportunity for Marine Corps Base Hawaii to show the community how much we appreciate living and working alongside them in Hawaii,” said Col. Speros C. Koumparakis, commanding officer, Marine Corps Base Hawaii. “Our installation is home to a Maritime Team that is on the cutting edge of future developments within the Marine Corps. Our team of military members and civilian employees are dedicated to protecting not only our country, but also our environmental, historical, and cultural resources. This air show and open house is the perfect opportunity for the community to spend time aboard the installation and gain a better understanding of what we do as part of the nation’s premier crisis response force.”
