|Rest in peace Mr. Boranian...|
Aloha, check out my opinion article in the (04-12-13) edition of the Kauai Garden Island News, "Remembering Harry Boranian."
I was saddened when I read in the TGI Obituary column of the passing of fellow Frequent Letter writer Harry Boranian.
Although our paths only met through the pages of this forum, I felt a kinship similar to the kinship I experienced when another frequent letter writer Horace Stoessel passed away last year.
Mr. Boranian was a world war 2 veteran,he was civil service director in Honolulu in the 1970s under Frank Fasi, and on the Big Island in the 1980's for Hawai‘i County. As you can see he not only served his country by county and state as well.
I remember reading a letter Mr. Boranian penned last July concerning the military and allowing both men and woman to serve together on submarines. Sounded like fun to me!
Mr Boranian stated "A good reason not to mix sub crews is that many of the men have wives and families at home. Separation is bad enough without the worry of your husband or wife being tempted while at sea."
Agree or dis-agree I always looked forward to an opinion article from a fellow frequent letter writer Harry Boranian. RIP, Mr. B.
