"The program was very informative," said Staff Sgt. Lehua Johnson, supply NCO, 94th AAMDC. "It truly opened my eyes to what that culture went through during that time and how even today; it still impacts the lives of their family members."

Soldiers from the 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command brought smiles to kid’s faces of Linapuni Elementary School for field day, Apr 24.

The day of fun filled physical activity was developed to help promote the schools health and wellness program and showed the students all about healthy living, by doing activates such as shuttle runs, relays, and basketball.
Soldiers of the 94th AAMDC supervised the different events and also challenged the kids to try various exercises from the Army’s physical readiness program.

“ Watching the kids do push –ups and sit-ups with us during their field day was so exciting, they really enjoyed having us come out and support them during this time, and it shows that we are a part of this community not just in it” says Sgt. 1st Class, Wesley Burton, Chaplain Assistant, 94th AAMDC.

The school staff and parents of the students were very inspired by how the kids took to the Soldiers of the 94th AMMDC, as the whistle blew to change stations and laughter from excitement filled the air.

“It truly warms my heart to see the kids so excited; having the military here to help us is a plus. We are very grateful, if it wasn’t for the Soldiers of the 94th AAMDC this day wouldn’t be the success that it is” says Susan Kando, Community Networking Coordinator.
