Honolulu residents Jamie Azama, left, Christopher Shelton, Robert Azama and Lynn Azama stopped to take a GoPro selfie with the Rue de Honolulu sign in Bruyeres, France, last month. Bruyeres became a sister city of Honolulu in 1961 as a result of the bond established during World War II when the soldiers of the 100th Infantry Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team, Japanese-American units with thousands of soldiers from Hawaii, freed Bruyeres from Nazi occupation.
