Our R&R In Hawaii
Dedicated to My Husband Bill

Submitted by Linda

Our story starts in 1967 when my husband of six years was sent to Vietnam for a one year tour. We had planned a romantic meeting during the half way point in his tour in Hawaii. I saved the money and we made our plans. My parents would take care of our 2 year old daughter. I flew to Hawaii 2 days before him to make sure we didn't miss a minute of our very short seven day R&R. At the same time the VietCong were planning their "Tet" offensive with their target the air field at the base where Bill was stationed. They tried twice to get a plane out but to no avail. I am meeting every plane not knowing where my husband was and the AirForce would not tell me anything about where he was. They finally got a break in the fighting and were able to leave. I was never so happy to see anyone in my life. Our trip was now cut to 5 days, so we made the best of what we had. We toured the beautiful island, saw Don Ho and walked on the beautiful beach. Too soon it was time for him to go. It was very hard as we did not know if we would see each other again. He did come home in July of 1968. We have been married 42 years and had 2 children and now have 6 grandchildren. We promised each other we would return to Hawaii to relive our trip. It would be wonderful to return to that magical place.
