Since September 11th 2001, many military units have been deployed by NATO to maintain security and defend the values of peace, freedom and fraternity around the world.
“This morning in Frethun, near Calais, a necessary tribute was paid to the Memorial of the soldiers (Military, Police) who sacrificed their lives in the service of NATO.” – Mady Dorches, Conseillère régionale déléguée au Devoir de Mémoire at Region Hauts-De-France, Sept. 9th 2021.
Their Royal highnesses had forwarded a personal letter to H.E. Willy Breton, President of the NATO- OTAN memorial expressing the House of Kamakahelei’s support for the memorial as Patrons and their regret at not being able to attend this year’s ceremony.
It is hoped that in 2022, their Royal Highness’s Prince Darrick and Prince Anna, accompanied by the Chancellor H.E. Col. Michael Thornley, will be in attendance at the Memorial in Frethun, France to honour the fallen NATO soldiers.
We would also like to acknowledge the assistance of H.E. Rui Santos Vargas in representing the House of Kamakahelei with various matters pertaining to this most solemn occasion.
The French newspaper ‘Nord Littoral’ featured the House of Kamakahelei in two separate articles regarding the ‘la commemoration du Memorial de l’OTAN.
