Kumana said a short friendship that keep him raise the USA Flag.
Aaron Kumana always gives a very big smile when he always raised a USA Flag given by Cpt. Rhode, and sometimes with a very big shout, “HURRAY!” this is when he started a day work. Besides, my grandfather who always dreamed of what to give to his community as a gift from him from the USA. He said that people came to him and talking about him as someone known to the other end of the world, and could be the source of bringing help to develop the community because of his famous story of rescuing the future president of USA.
He said, raising a USA flag was only to commemorate my love for my president John F Kennedy. He said he once show him during the period of rescuing him, and that is the last time I show him. However, because of how famous he was the story of promise to see us I and Biuku is another chapter of the PT109 rescue, said Kumana or Eroni Kumana
Kumana said that it was the shortest friendship in his life that keeps him raising the USA flag. A shortest of all friendship that keeps all these tourists and students from all over the world to hear the story of the rescuer. That is why all my people are expecting something as a reward, said Kumana
He said he is going very soon and ask his grandchildren to fulfill his 5 recommendations (The 5R’s). http://aronkumana.blogspot.com/2010/05/aaron-kumanas-5-recommendations.html.
