Darrell Bactad, with the Hawaii Air National Guard, represents a Soldier of the rank of "Kakiana Hao" in Hawaii\'s Royal Guard as he stands beside the "Lost Heroes Art Quilt" during a ceremony honoring the crafted work at the Hawaii State Capitol Rotunda, Honolulu, July 21. The quilt, created by artist Judie Feingold, honors the sacrifice of fallen military service members of each of the Nation's 50 states with cutout photo portraits of the fallen heroes as children clad in "G.I. Joe" cloth jackets to represent the timeless spirit of the memory of their families. The quilt, currently on a nationwide tour, stops in Hawaii to honor the sacrifice of Hawaii's quilt representative, Pearl City, Hawaii native, Cpl. Kyle Kaeo Fernandez. (U.S. Army photo by Spc.
