Well now, your wrong, what your looking at is a State document that says there is a birth certificate from HI and that they verify that, it is not the birth certificate. And to get a Pass Port you must show a birth certificate or a certified copy of one, not a state certificate of birth that doesn't cut it. Oh, I did 29 years on active duty in the US military and retired an Officer. Oh, second I was Officer in Charge of a recruiting office that covered half of California, and that would not make it, you must have gotten the certified copy of the birth certificate to come into the Marines. Just face the facts...there right in front of your face....
