Very nice website. I was the Chaplain (Army) and later a Raytheon contract Chaplain up until closure.
While JI was notorious for partying, etc., some people are not aware that there were a number of people who actively practiced their faith while there. I was privileged to serve those folks on two occasions. As we closed down the chapel the small JI congregations were able to help a lot of homeless folk in Honolulu by giving clothing and other items to River of Life Mission — downtown Honolulu — as well as build churches in many third world countries.
Thanks for your efforts and for all who served on JI.
