After General Eric Ken Shinseki became Chief of Staff of the US Army in 1999, the Hawaii Army Museum Society established a GEN Eric K. Shinseki Gallery in the US Army Museum of Hawaii at Battery Randolph. General Shinseki, born on Kau'ai and educated in the public schools of Hawaii, was the first American of Asian ancestry to be promoted to the rank of a four star general and to become chief of his service. The community responded with enthusiasm to the establishment of the gallery. A testimonial dinner in November 2003 filled the Hawaii Convention Center and raised a substantial fund for the Shinseki Endowment in the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation. The trustees of the Museum Society thought it appropriate to commission a brief biography of the general's life to go with the exhibit. They asked Richard Halloran, formerly of the New York Times as a military correspondent in Washington, D.C., and foreign correspondent in Asia, to write it. We are pleased to present his excellent work. By Richard Halloran Paperback Pages: 67
