The Mokulele (airplane) highway has had a name change to MAUI VETERANS HIGHWAY.
It was first brought up to me by former Maui County Veterans Council President Rogelio Evangelista. He tried to get the name changed in 2008 but the timing just wasn’t right.
Last year I tried to get the name changed thru State Senator Roz Baker and State House Speaker Joe Souki. The timing was right and the deed has been done! This is an important honor for all veterans as well as an important lesson. Do what is ‘pono’ and don’t give up!
President Maui County Veterans Council President, years 2009-2014
