Honolulu District Celebrates 112th Birthday With Pre-Dawn Hike to Makapu`u Lighthouse
Led by Honolulu District Commander Lt. Col. James Hoyman and former Honolulu District Commander Lt. Col. Christopher Crary, more than 16 District teammates and their friends braved blustery rain storm conditions on a pre-dawn hike to view the Makapu`u Lighthouse April 21 in celebration of the 112th anniversary of the District’s founding. Deputy District Commander Maj. Tom Piazze, Capt. Tobias Apps, Capt. Ken Porter and 1st Lt. Brenna Heisterman also participated in the hike to the lighthouse. Makapu`u Lighthouse was built by the Corps in 1909 on a 600-foot sea cliff overlooking Makapu`u Beach in southeast Oahu. The lighthouse is 46-feet-tall (14 meters) and was fully automated in 1974. It is still an active U.S. Coast Guard navigation aid in use today.
