October Ist, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Its time to head off to Hawaii & get Congressman Mark Takai to explain the importance of military service to students. The Congressman is an active duty Lieutenant-Colonel in the Hawaii Army National Guard at the same time as being a member of congress.
"The military has been such an important part of our history. Even pre-dating the start of World War II, the military has played a pivotal role in our state's history. We are a unique state because of everybody coming together, including the military families, so we pay particular attention to our military."
