HAWAII CREATES STATE MEDAL OF HONOR AWARD

An item in the Hawaii Reporter April 11 notes that "As of
February 28, 2006, we in Hawaii have lost 120 service members,
who have sacrificed their lives while in the line of duty. To
pay a special tribute to these heroes and to their families,
last year we passed House Bill 8 (2005), which became Act 21.
House Bill 8 created the Hawaii Medal of Honor.

This special medal is awarded on behalf of the people of the
State of Hawaii to an individual who has been killed in action
while serving our country as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom
and Operation Enduring Freedom."

"The families of these fallen service members will all receive
the Hawaii Medal of Honor on behalf of their loved ones. The
Special Joint Session of the Legislature is scheduled for
Tuesday, April 18, 2006 at 10 a.m. in the House Chambers."
