Celebrating the Military Family 2020

Armed Services YMCA Hawaii is honored to present the 8th annual Celebrating the Military Family. This event commemorates the start of Military Family Month every November with a ceremony honoring six service members and their families, one from each branch of service. Honorees are chosen for exemplifying the branch of service's values and the Celebrating the Military Family theme of the year. This year's theme is "Doing the extraordinary everyday." We know you will enjoy meeting these hardworking, upstanding, and outstanding men and women.


Under normal circumstances, Celebrating the Military Family is a breakfast gathering for more than 450 people at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Coral Ballroom. Thank you for joining us for this year's virtual ceremony. Enjoy the video!
