As it has for America's other indigenous peoples, I believe the United States must fulfill its responsibility to Native Hawaiians.
I remember saying to the chairman after serving the first year, "Why are we doing this? Why don't the Hawaiians have control?" "Well, we have no mechanism to do it," I was told.
On December 5, 1941, Chicago led a task force built around the carrier Lexington to Midway Island, at the western end of the Hawaiian Islands, about 1,000 miles from Pearl Harbor.
I greatly enjoyed the Hawaiian Islands.
They are a real little paradise in spite of the influx of Americans who have made it one of their most pleasant 'centers of resort': the soft climate and luxuriance of the tropics; the greenness, the fragrance, the flowers - extraordinary flowers covering the tallest trees and turning them into huge bouquets.
