STAND. COM. REP. NO.3358
RE: S.R. No. 74
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations, to which was referred S.R. No. 74 entitled:
"SENATE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THAT NEW STATE AND COUNTY BUILDINGS BE NAMED IN HONOR OF HAWAII RESIDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN AWARDED THE CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR FOR ACTS OF HEROISM DURING WORLD WAR II, THE KOREAN WAR, AND THE VIETNAM WAR,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request that new state and county buildings be named in honor of Hawaii residents who have been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Office of Veterans' Services.
Your Committee finds that those brave men and women who have served our country to protect the ideals of freedom and democracy deserve our utmost respect. Those whose deeds earned them the Congressional Medal of Honor are true American heroes.
Naming a new state or county building, especially a school, after these courageous men and women will serve as a lasting tribute to their heroism, and an inspiration to all those entering the building.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.R. No. 74 and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations,
CAL KAWAMOTO, Chair
