On October 27, 2011, Hawaii’s senior Senator Daniel Inouye visited the 199th Fighter and 19th Fighter Squadrons. The squadrons were working toward achieving Initial Operational Capability (IOC). 

The F-22 Raptors declared IOC in November 2012. Review the Earlier Retiree News post.

Through the years, Senator Inouye was a supporter of the Hawaii Air National Guard. He insured there was construction funds for new buildings and renovating older facilities, and funds for equipment upgrades. 

The HIANG benefited from The Senator’s seniority in the senate and his influence as the Chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee.
