The Hawaiian breakfast

While I did not get to do nearly as much sightseeing and sampling of island cuisines, I did have the pleasure to have the supposedly very traditional Hawaiian breakfast, over at of all places, the Burger King located near the main gate of Schofield Barracks, Hi.

The ingredients for the breakfast are steamed white rice, scrambled eggs, and a few slices of Spam, lightly sauteed. They're incredibly simple to make and probably an almost perfect breakfast if you have one of these busy mornings that requires a lot of running around. For a lighter version of the same dish, try doing mostly eggwhites for scrambled eggs and turkey Spam.

Finish the meal with a cup of Kona coffee....and you'll be good to go!

The Navy has a tradition of helping their own. Elroy day, a former bubble head has an incredible story to tell. He was blinded in a home invasion in North Carolina in 1995. He recently applied for and was accepted into the Purple Heart Service Foundations job training program to teach him how to become an at home call center agent. Against all odds, working with a disability that would stop most everyone else, he graduated. He completed 600 hours of hard training and now he is reaching out to other blind and vision disabled veterans to tell them about the opportunity that he had. He wants other blind veterans to come and join him. You see, he has a dream of opening a blinded veterans call center. Staffed by former members of the US military who are now blind, for what ever reason. You can help with his dream, just spreading the word. If you know of any veteran who is vision disabled, have them contact Elroy Day immediately . They can email him at eday@carolina.rr.com or call Ms. Thompson at 703 835 3531.
And remember, the Navy has a tradition of helping their own.
