Deutsch Nu'uelua Pu’u honored for his service to Army country and community. After 9 deployments, Pu’u’s new programs inspire youth around the Pacific.

“I got a program in Samoa with the right people in the right place. All these programs, the combat programs in Samoa and Hawaii, it’s all just to look out for the kids,” Pu’u says. “This generation of Samoans and Polynesians – we’re educated; we’re the doers, the movers. It’s all about what we’re willing to put forward. If I’m willing to step forward, I’m going to step completely forward.”

Pu’u has a number of big fights lined up this year – in the mainland and Hawaii.
