Secrets of the Solomon Islands

Nov. 21, 2016

My article "Secrets of the Solomon Islands" appeared on the front page of yesterday's edition of The Honolulu Star-Advertiser. With the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor coming up on December 7, 2016 and the 100th anniversary of JFK's birth in a few months, it was a particularly poignant time to be in the Solomons. A memorable experience in a truly memorable place.
