HONOLULU — For the more than 60,000 activity duty military personnel in Hawaii, their spouses are the “unsung heroes” who support them as they protect our country.

During Military Appreciation Month, the Military Affairs Council (MAC) will be honoring approximately 60 military spouses for their unwavering commitments to their spouse, family, community and country at a luncheon at Bishop Museum sponsored by MAC members Island Palm Communities and Hickam Communities.

With many of the spouses being new residents of Hawaii, the MAC wanted to also officially welcome them to the state and provide them with an opportunity to visit Bishop Museum. Prior to the luncheon and program, the spouses will be taken on docent led tour of the museum to learn more about Hawaii’s history and culture.
