Anyway good to see other from the homeland make it to that area.
I have heard that there was a Tongan guy name Isikeli made it to the US air force long time ago and put his mark there.I came across the name while out on the field about 2 years ago.
Does anyone know any Tongan that made it to the US air force???

Willy is a retired captain in the navy, retired commander in the airforce and a doctor of the marines. In other words Willy is a "ta katoa".

Any Tongan that made it to the US airforce as I know they are high rank to make it that far.I does wanted to know if anyone know Isikeli that flew in the US airforce as he was very much respected as a pilot

I have not seen a Tongan in Amberly but saw a few Samoan come by.I have not heard if they past thier hours on the flight deck yet.
