A Memorial Day Tribute

This Memorial Day, Miranda Country Store pays tribute to the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Among these heroes are many local Hawaiians whose stories of courage and dedication continue to inspire us today.

One such story is that of the 100th Infantry Battalion, also known as the “Purple Heart Battalion.” Composed primarily of Japanese Americans from Hawaii, this battalion displayed extraordinary bravery during World War II. Despite facing discrimination and being initially mistrusted by the mainland military establishment, these soldiers proved their loyalty and valor on the battlefield.

The 100th Infantry Battalion was formed in 1942, shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Many of its members were Nisei, second-generation Japanese Americans who were initially part of the Hawaii National Guard. When they were called to serve, these soldiers left their homes and families to fight for a country that had placed their loved ones in internment camps.

Their journey began in Camp McCoy, Wisconsin, where they underwent rigorous training. The battalion saw its first combat in Italy, where they fought bravely in the battles of Salerno, Monte Cassino, and Anzio. Their relentless spirit and unmatched courage earned them the nickname “Purple Heart Battalion” due to the high number of casualties and injuries sustained.

The 100th Infantry Battalion’s legacy is one of resilience and patriotism. They proved that loyalty and bravery know no bounds, and their contributions were instrumental in the Allied victory in Europe. Their story serves as a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made by so many to protect our freedoms.

As we remember these heroes, let us reflect on the values they embodied: honor, courage, and dedication. On this Memorial Day, we honor their memory and the legacy they have left for future generations.

Mahalo for joining us in paying tribute to these remarkable individuals. Their stories continue to inspire us and remind us of the true meaning of this day.

2023 Go For Broke Monument Anniversary Virtual Tribute
We invite you to watch this special anniversary of when our humble, but determined, Nisei veterans presented the Go For Broke Monument to the City of Los Angeles on June 5, 1999. Their hope was that the Monument would forever stand as a reminder of the 33,000 Japanese American men and women who valiantly served our nation at all costs. The program highlights the character and valor of the Nisei soldiers of WWII, and will feature three new video segments that reflect the intergenerational sharing of this important American story.
Hosted by:
Dr. Mitch Maki, President/CEO of Go For Broke National Education Center and Sierra Katow, Actor, Comedian, Writer & Host of GFBNEC’s Living the Nisei Dream.
Visit www.goforbroke.org to learn more about the legacy of the Nisei soldiers of WWII, and how you can help ensure their legacy continues in securing the freedoms and liberties for all Americans. Together, we can make a difference.

Custom Fabricated Gates

A custom fabricated gate is a gate that is specifically designed and built to fit the needs of a particular ranch or farm. These gates are made from galvanized metal to last in our local weather conditions. The gate’s design and materials are also customized based on factors such as the size of the opening, the type of livestock being kept.

Ranchers and farmers need custom fabricated gates because standard-sized gates often do not fit the specific needs of their property. For example, if a rancher has a large herd of cattle, they may need a gate that is wider and sturdier than a standard gate to accommodate the movement of the animals. Similarly, a gate for a farm with a lot of foot traffic may need to be designed with a locking mechanism to prevent unauthorized entry.

Custom fabricated gates can also be designed to withstand the harsh weather conditions common in rural Hawaii. For example, a gate in an area prone to high winds may need to be reinforced to prevent damage from gusts.

Miranda Country Store custom fabricates gates designed and built to meet the specific needs of a particular ranch or farm, and they are necessary for ensuring the safety and security of the property and its inhabitants.

We have a large selection of fencing materials and create our custom gates on site. We are locally owned and operated and appreciate your business.

If you can provide us with some specifics for your needs and we’ll work with you to create an estimate and help you source the best installer for your particular farm, garden or ranch.

If you are setting up fencing on a ranch, there are a few fencing supplies that you may want to keep handy to ensure that your fencing project goes smoothly. Here is a list of some typical fencing supplies that you may want to consider keeping on hand:

  1. Fence posts: These are the vertical supports that hold your fence up. They can be made of wood, metal, or a combination of materials.
  2. Fence rails: These are the horizontal pieces that run between the fence posts and provide stability to the fence. They can also be made of wood, metal, or a combination of materials.
  3. Fence panels: These are pre-assembled sections of fencing that can be easily installed between fence posts.
  4. Fence wire: This is used to create the actual barrier of the fence. It can be made of various materials, including steel, aluminum, and vinyl.
  5. Fence staples: These are used to secure the fence wire to the fence posts and rails.
  6. Wire tensioners: These are used to tighten the fence wire and ensure that it is properly secured to the fence.
  7. Fence gates: These allow you to easily access different areas of your ranch.
  8. Fence tools: You will likely need a variety of tools to install and maintain your fence, including hammers, pliers, wire cutters, and post hole diggers.

It’s also a good idea to have some basic repair supplies on hand, such as extra fence wire, staples, and fence posts, in case any of your fence needs to be repaired.
