Carnival In Hawaii – An innovation in Hawaii was the exhibition of equipment demonstrations, trophies, explanatory charts, pictures, what-not held recently at APO 953, the purpose of which was to acquaint the GI with the meaning of the various outfits of the armed forces, their functions and relationships with one another, as well as with a knowledge of the enemy, and his equipment and resources.
