Military << Acts of Aloha

Raele & Jason Scott
Guaranteed Rate

"Raele and Jason are both super super involved in the military community. They opened a mortgage company and their primary goal is help military families acquire a home. Raele is also very involved with Joint Spouses which is a non-profit organization that serves the spouses of active duty, reserve, National Guard, and retired military members of all the armed services here on Oahu. They also created a Facebook group primarily to give guidance to military families. They both are so so so selfless. They go out of their way to help others. It does not matter if it’s a family member, a close friend or just an accountant or a neighbor. For them, helping others is part of their way of being. For me, this is a true act of Aloha – they live Aloha and they treat everyone as their Ohana. They make us feel like we are all part of their Ohana.  I am honored to know them.Nominated by Pati Hoyt,

"Matt and Karen McCarville epitomize what "Aloha" is. Their caring, compassion and love of our country's wounded military persons and families of our fallen knows no end. Mathew McCarville LTC. (ret.) and Karen McCarville volunteer tirelessly through out the year helping our wounded warriors and their families to include our Gold Star Families through the AUSA Na Koa Regatta for Wounded Warriors and their Families...Veterans are once again a part of a Team, they are on the waters of Hawaii which in and of itself is very healing, they are among their peers, they see that they are supported by the community, by the people holding public office, by the military and the business community. Most of all, they see that they are not alone, they are not forgotten and that they are in fact, loved.  All of this is because of the Aloha that personifies Matt and Karen McCarville.Nominated by Mark Seery, U.S. Army Veteran

Drive Thru Joe Coffee, on Schofield

"Joe is the owner of Drive Thru Joe Coffee located on Hickam AFB. He is a USAF veteran turned coffee connoisseur who wakes up every morning long before the sun rises in order to provide deliciouscoffee to the community. Joe not only creates amazing drinks, but delivers each of them with aloha.
