Members of Team Hurlburt celebrated Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage during a Cultural Day here, May 25. Members of Hurlburt celebrated to remember the contributions and accomplishments made by Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. May was officially designated as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in 1992 after President George H. W. Bush signed a bill passed by Congress to extend the week-long celebration to a month-long celebration in 1990. The event held at the Hurlburt Field Community Park Pavilion included free food, a Kuk Sool Won demonstration and a hula demonstration.
