We are humbled to be in the presence of great men whose actions bent history itself. We celebrate the bravery and courage of the Hispanic Medal of Honor recipients onboard the USS Missouri (BB-63) Memorial today with Governor Doug Ducey. I also had the privilege of ringing the Freedom Bell to commemorate all the service men and women from Hawaiʻi who gave their lives for our freedom, especially those who perished on December 7, 1941. May we each live in a way that honors their service.

Incredibly honored to welcome over 70 WWII veterans to Honolulu, many of them survivors of the attack. Gary Sinise flew in with the veterans and will be helping them commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor. We recognize the sacrifices these men and their families made, and we express our gratitude to them.
