SENATOR MAZIE K. HIRONO JOINS SENATE COMMITTEE ON ARMED SERVICES

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mazie K. Hirono released the following statement after being assigned to the Senate Committee on Armed Services:

"I am honored to serve on the Senate Committee on Armed Services. Hawaii is home to the US Pacific Command and thousands of men and women who serve our country in the armed forces. Our military’s presence in Hawaii not only plays a critical role in our national security but also in driving our state’s economy and supporting thousands of jobs in the public and private sectors. I look forward to partnering with my colleague on the House Armed Services Committee, Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa, in preserving Hawaii’s important role in our national security. Our nation owes a tremendous debt to our service members and military families, and I look forward to fighting for them on this new committee.”

Hirono will now serve on the Committee on Armed Services, Judiciary Committee, and Committee on Veterans Affairs.
