Message from the President

Aloha Cacti brothers and sisters.

With the new year upon us I am grateful for the opportunity to express my appreciation for your membership to the Cacti Association. It is because of our generous members, like you, that we continue to be a giving organization. Since my last letter the Association was able to help coordinate with the actives of 2-35IN Battalion a wonderful experience for one of our Korean War veterans, Mr. Warren Schuster. Mr. Schuster along with his three daughters and two son in-laws came for a visit to Oahu to look back on where he trained prior to fighting on the Korean peninsula. The actives provided a terrific tour, weapons familiarization display, and lunch. On behalf of the entire Association, thank you LTC Walther and team for your hard work to make the event such a success. The entire Schuster family was beyond impressed with the display of hospitality and effort that went into to making their dad's visit so special.

Please remember that it is because of your financial generosity to the association that we are able to provide much needed scholarships; provide financial support to the actives to help offset the costs related to special events/ projects; provide financial assistance to members who have experienced a difficult time, and provide funding for other Cacti related projects. The next time you decide to donate to an organization please think of giving to the Cacti Association. I hope each of you have a healthy, prosperous, and joyful 2023.

Take Arms,

Brian J. Hughes
