Love it every time I get access to Hickam Air Force Base.  This is one of the nicest military bases in Hawaii.  The base is filled with history and bullet holes.  You can actually see hundreds if not thousands of rounds of bullets that blanketed the buildings in 1941.  While the bullet holes from the Japanese strafing are still in the walls, the sound and fury of F22 Raptor Fighter Jets above let you know that you are safe and protected by some of the best airmen and woman in the world.  When I enter Hickam I am overwhelmed with a sense of pride, patriotism and the upmost respect for our military.  Really wish I could convey to the troops how much I appreciate their service to our country.  Perhaps playing a round of golf for the Friends of Hickam Foundation and donating to a great cause that blends the business world with the military at Hickam is a start.  The Friends of Hickam Golf Tournament is a large event that brings together the Hawaii business community with the Base Commander, military personnel and the private sector that provides service and support to the base.   The day is filled with golf and lots of airplanes since the course is literally located on the flight line of Hickam and runway for Honolulu International Airport.  You not only see and hear military jets and aircraft but also every type of commercial jet that flies the sky.  Prop jets to the largest 767 and Airbus literally taxi by some of the greens and takeoff and land just a few yards away.  It is a symphony of flight and I love it!  Our day of golf ended at the Officers Club where we enjoyed a buffet, awards ceremony (I won an umbrella) and a few words from the Base Commander.  Truly blessed to spend some time on Hickam and in the company of the men and woman who serve this great country.
