Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie ordered flags at state offices and the Hawaii National Guard to fly at half-staff today in honor of a former state lawmaker who died last month.

Fukuda died last month at age 91.

Fukuda was a Japanese interpreter and translator for the U.S. Army during World War II. He was awarded a Congressional Gold Medal in 2010 with about 6,000 Japanese-Americans.

Fukuda was a House member in the first state Legislature, then went on to be U.S. attorney in the state.

Abercrombie says Fukuda set a standard for people in public service who followed him.
