We welcome the opportunity to share our vision to perpetuate the legacy of the 100th Infantry Battalion by using their values to engage students and kūpuna to resolve issues or problems facing Hawaiʻi.
The 100th Infantry Battalion Veterans organization is proud to be partnering with ʻIolani School (Candice Sakuda - Director of Community & Civic Engagement) and the University of Hawaiʻi Center on Aging (Dr. Christy Nishita - Interim Director) on a Project Based Learning (PBL) initiative to “identify a problem or issue, facing Hawaiʻi, and to develop a creative solution using the values of the 100th Infantry Battalion.”
