To honor our mother this Veterans Day: Lucille Mary Namahanaikeleleokalani Kekipi Kamakahukilani, Service 1952-1958. Army had to revise dog tags to say Kekipi and/or Kip because her last name was so long. She met our father, Msgt. Frank O Cordeiro Jr., in New York at Governors Island, and they later married. He's passed, but she still remains vibrant and active at 84 years in Trail. Thanks, Mom, for your service, we love you! - Cordeiro Ohana
