By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:55 a.m. HST, Jun 17, 2013

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.

She was the best thing that happened to Hawaii in the Clinton Recession. With a 100% Democratic legislature she done good and would have been a senator we could be proud of---look who we have in there now!!!

If you will note, the commenter referenced her time served during the "Clinton Recession". She had much more time after Clinton to cover her name in mud.

It's Partisan Politics. You can't have a Republican doing good in a Democratic State. It has nothing to do with what she did, but has everything to do with what political party she belonged to.

Where is Irene? I guess the aloha is gone, if all they have is Sabas. Another dead-end.
