PC: County of Maui / Shane Tegarden

County of Maui offices are closed today, Thursday, Nov. 11 in observance of the Veterans Day holiday. Emergency medical services, fire, and police services will still be available.

On this Veterans Day, Nov. 11, veterans are honored, especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the defense of the nation.

Senator Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaiʻi), Member of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs said, “Veterans, servicemembers, and their families have dedicated their lives to defending our freedoms, and today, we come together to honor their bravery, sacrifice, and commitment to our nation.”

She continued saying: “I remain committed to fighting for veterans and servicemembers in Hawaiʻi and across the country, and will continue to work with my colleagues on the Committees on Veterans’ Affairs and Armed Services to keep our promises to them, like making sure they can access affordable health care—including mental health services—housing, education, and more. I will also continue working with the Department of Veterans Affairs to make sure programs and services are accommodating and available to every veteran, no matter their race, ethnicity, gender identity, or sexual orientation.”
