Lt. Kanakanui To Command Guard Ship For Flight

Lieut. (jg) William Kanakanui, USN, member of a well-known kamaaina family and once-famous swimmer for Punahou and the U.S. Naval academy, was given command of the minsweeper USS Tanager this week in accordance with orders from the Navy department at Washington, D.C.

Kanakanui will be in charge of the vessel as she takes her station far out in the Pacific as a weather reporting ship for the six navy planes scheduled to hop off for Pearl Harbor from San Francisco January 12. The Tanager will be stationed at latitude 34, longitude 150, or several hundred miles north of the planes’ route.

While at the Naval academy over a decade ago Kanakanui won national recognition as a swimmer, setting several records. He was a member of the swimming team during his four years at the Academy. He had been well known in local aquatic circles while at Punahou, where he received his prep school training.
