Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, who died last year, was posthumously awarded the U.S. Army Pacific Mana O Ke Koa “Spirit of the Warrior” award during the U.S. Army Pacific’s birthday commemoration ceremony Friday.

Accepting the award on behalf of the late senator’s family was Jennifer Sabas, former chief of staff to Inouye. Sabas was presented a medallion to be given to Inouye’s widow, Mrs. Irene Hirano Inouye.  

The Mana O Ke Koa was established six years ago and is the command’s highest annual civilian award and honors individuals who have supported the Army.

Past recipients include William W. "Bill" Paty, Gov. Linda Lingle, P. Pasha Bake, Carole Kai, Mr. Ken Bailey and Albert Silva.
