We wouldn't have lasted ten minutes
Sixty-nine years ago today, Allied forces landed on Guadalcanal. To commemorate the efforts of the coastwatchers, a statue was unveiled this morning in downtown Honiara.
Three Solomon Islanders who served as Coastwatchers participated in the ceremony, and other ceremonies were held around town throughout the day to honor this special day.
We are thankful to live here among such a generous people.
In case you can't read the tiny print below, it says, "Without local help I don't know what we would have done, we wouldn't have lasted ten minutes." That's the way we feel about our
Solomon friends, too.
