On hallowed ground...

How the "Hawaii Five-O" team treated the real heroes, part 3

The latest post (below) from Steffan Tubbs, KOA-AM newsman, who witnessed the "Hawaii Five-O" production team's lack of respect for those U.S. military heroes visiting their fallen brethren at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific last week...


The show's set: the final resting place of U.S. military heroes...

From Tubbs: "Friends... even if I am lying - which I am certainly not - is this the type of 'Hollywood' respect our dead veterans receive in 2011? Tell me I'm not the only one outraged here! Repost this, share it! LETS GET BACK SOME DIGNITY! Someone at CBS needs be held accountable for this travesty."

Just imagine if the headstone of one of our vets fallen brothers was underneath the camera dolly?!?! Do you think they would have moved it for them? Yeah, right.

THIS IS OUTRAGIOUS...WHEN DID IT BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO FILM A TV SHOW THAN TO SHOW RESPECT OUR REAL HEROS? AND THEIR EXCUSES FOR DOING SO IS COVERED IN MONEY.

CBS AND THE PRODUCER SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS OUTRAGE

But if they had been filming "Moonlight" then all hunky-dory, right NANA?

CBS. It disappoints many involved that you can’t even recognize the fact your H5O production staff were ill-mannered towards the returning Pearl Harbor survivors. Now according to unnamed CBS spokesperson, you are going to look into this to determine if we can trust the word of our Pearl Harbor survivors. Believe me, these war veterans are primed, and ready for one last fight, and please trust me - YOU WILL NOT WIN THIS BATTLE..

Completely disgraceful! I completely understand these people have a job to do, but to act that way in the presence of the very people who fought for your way of life...I am just speechless.

I think our families and schools have FAILED miserably that these people had no respect for the veterans paying their respects to our fallen. We all need a wake up call.

I don't see a problem with the set there in the cemetery, and how do you know that they had a camera dolly on a headstone, you don't, remember we all walk in the cemetery to visit the fallen, they run mowers over the fallen to keep the grass trimmed, bulldozers run over the stones to dig up more graves for more of the fallen so get over the point that the set was somehow any more disruptive or disrespectful to the fallen heroes of the past/present. The show focuses on the military and puts money into the local economy plus the punchbowl had to get paid to allow them on the premises which means they can use that money to help upkeep the cemetery, so more helpful than hurtful. Remember that its a cemetery and we all have someone buried in a cemetery somewhere so I find it hard to believe that everybody on that crew had ill will towards desecrating it. They have filmed there and many other places that contain the dead, get over it already, disrupting the dead would be about forgetting them and with the show filming there that doesnt seem like it would be the case, it would only bring light to the fact that soldiers on December 7th 1941 and to the present day have been fighting for freedom.

What about the disrespect shown by those at Dover AFB who literally dumped the remains of veterans? Where's the outrage for that?

It appears that Mr. Tubbs (a board member of TGGF) couldn't get any actors to come visit the bus (lost some influence in the eyes of the vets - probably as only Mr. Tubbs would see it) and so he decided to turn it into a "media event" over disrespect of the veterans ...

Simply because his own feeling were hurt, he decided to ruin the day for everyone. . .
The veterans buried there don't care... they are NOT lying under there looking up and being disgusted at people walking over their graves... only we see that. Only we (the living) get riled up by people accusing disrespect by "eye-witnesses" ...

I'm half-expecting that this thread has been blocked for any further comment...
