Solomon Islands and Fiji

Oct. 13, 2016

Off shortly to the Solomon Islands on assignment in advance of the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the 100th anniversary of JFK's birth. JFK's boat, PT-109, was attacked by the Japanese in the Solomon Islands and capsized. He was rescued several days later after swimming several miles, often carrying one of his crew. For his leadership, courage and valor in saving his men, he received the Navy Medal of Honor, and for the injuries he sustained, the Purple Heart.  While in the Solomon Islands, I will also be interviewing the Honorable Sir Albert R. Palmer, Chief Justice of the High Court.

 

On my way back to the US, I will be spending a few days in Fiji also on assignment, on the island of Yasawa. 

 

Several newpaper articles to follow. Stay tuned.
