Memorial Day 2022: A Message from Hoʻōla Farms’ Co-Founder

Memorial Day 2022

Hoʻōla Farms started with the mission to serve military veterans, first responders, and their families by providing opportunities to heal, connect, learn, grow and thrive. Memorial Day is an important reminder to not only support veterans around us but to honor those who we have lost.

As we adjust to continued conflict in Europe, mass shootings in our homeland, and rising costs for our families; it is during these times of chaos and uncertainty that we should take a moment to pause. Today we must regroup and in doing so we take time to remember those who were the bravest, those who left us before their time.

Honor our fallen today and know they sit in the great Hall of Valhalla. Let us draw strength from their memory to forge ahead and create a more diverse and sustainable existence in their honor. I encourage you to dedicate your day to sharing positive energy and discovering the stories of our men and women who died in service.
