The Pledge of Allegiance during the closing session of the Republican National Convention will be led by a Hawaii delegate.
The Hawaii Republican Party says Dylan Nonaka was scheduled to lead the pledge today in Tampa, Fla., on the same night presidential nominee Mitt Romney is expected to deliver a speech.
The party says Nonaka is a former Marine who was a member of the first American troops to cross into Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
He’s also the former executive director of the Hawaii Republican Party.
