REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR KEITH JON PUHI

Kohala's own

Your did Hawaii proud. You were a great Hawaiian living with your Tutu Kane at Mahukona in Kohala, Hawaii. I grew up with you at Mahukona wharf, riding the bus to school, attending elementary classes at Kohala High & Elem. School. You and your brother Hume (David) were the best swimmers in Kohala. After elementary you left for Kamehameha Schools in Honolulu and we would look forward for your return to Kohala during vacations and long summers… just to go swimming. We hail your bravery and will honor your memory at our 50th class reunion in Kohala on July 7 & 8, 2017. Remembering the Kohala days is very special.

I met Keith when we were in Ammo Tech School, we became friends. When we got our orders for Vietnam, Keith wasn't able to return home for our 30 day leave. So Keith stayed with me and my family. He became part of our family.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Keith Jon Puhi, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter

Remembrance

Puhi was one of five (including myself) from Hawai'i that went through boot camp together at MCRD San Diego in 1967. Platoon 1068. He was the 'kid brother' that we had to look after, and urge on. I never saw him after graduation, and only learned about his death some years after I returned home from Viet Nam.
