Honolulu, Hawaii Artist Kahi Ching found an interesting object in Waikiki which he believed to be a piece of driftwood he could use for an art piece. After bringing it home, a friend suggested that it may indeed be something very different than wood and advised he contact authorities. The artist agreed and called the police.
Police cleared the area and called in the 74th U.S. Army EOD Company for support. EOD identified the item as a WWII-era armor piercing tracer round and transported it to Schofield Barracks for proper disposal.
