Renald Fernandez, the father of Pearl City, Hawaii native Cpl. Kyle Kaeo Fernandez, speaks to an audience of friends, guests, and military leaders during a ceremony honoring the "Lost Heroes Art Quilt," a crafted work honoring the sacrifices of military service members from each of the Nation's 50 states 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. Cpl. Fernandez, a 25th Infantry Division veteran, was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2004.
