Sen. Hirono visits Navy test and training facility

U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono from Hawaii visited Fleet Integrated Synthetic Test and Training Facility (FIST2FAC) at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Detachment Pacific on Ford Island, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on March 20.

As a member of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, one of Hirono’s missions is seeking to further explore the areas of research and development within the realm of national defense as well as to learn more about the collaboration to support needs specific to the local area of responsibility.

“I serve on the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee,” said Hirono. “I often visit centers and facilities so that I can better understand and be supportive of all of the people that are here and the work that they do.”

Hirono toured the training facilities to learn about daily procedures at the command, education that is provided to service members in operations at sea. She observed training and met the civilian and military personnel who operate the facilities and attend the training.
