2013 Hawaii’s Outstanding Military Spouse Awards Program

Sponsored by the Hawaii Navy League

News Release from Hawaii Navy League November 26, 2013

Background of Award Program

The Navy League was started in 1902 by President Theodore Roosevelt. Its mission is to educate the public on the need for a strong Sea Service. This is the tenth consecutive year that the Navy League has taken the initiative to honor our outstanding spouses of service members deployed abroad. The recipients of this year’s awards have functioned as the volunteer communication and organizational focal point for units that were or still are deployed in the theater of hostile operations during the calendar year of 2013. Quite simply, they are the glue that holds the deployed families together.  Each branch of the respective services they represent, to include the reserves, determined selection of each recipient. This year’s Honorees are as follows:

2013 Recipients

  • Air Force – Sharrie Brown
  • Army – Erika Gronenthal
  • Coast Guard – Maria Harris
  • Marines – Cara Lindsay
  • Navy – Edda Hernandez
  • Hawaii Air Guard – Rene Pagaoa
  • Hawaii Army Guard – Leslie Reese
  • US Pacific Command – Shannon Pedzinski

Award Ceremony at City Hall on 27 NOV at 1:30 PM: Hawaii Navy League President David Livingston will present/introduce award recipients to City and County of Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell. Mayor Caldwell will deliver remarks.

City and County of Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell, Hawaii Navy League President David Livingston, Major General Darryll Wong, State Rep. K. Mark Takai and Matthew Mishima from Oceanic Cable will present certificates to award recipients and will participate in a photo opportunity with recipients.

Presentation at UH Football Game at Aloha Stadium on 30 NOV at 5:55 PM: The Honorees will be recognized immediately prior to kick-off at mid-filed. Quite fitting as UH has declared it as Military Appreciation Day. Hawaii Navy League President David Livingston and Oceanic Time Warner Cable Vice President of Operations Norman Santos will lead the VIP delegation on to the field. Once reaching the award recipients, Mr. Livingston and Mr. Santos will present each with a ceremonial $500.00 check and congratulations, followed by Mayor Kirk Caldwell, Rep. K. Mark Takai, USARPAC Commander General Vincent Brooks and Major General Darryll Wong.
