Retired General Erik Shinseki visited the Hawaii National Guard headquarters on October 2, 2007.

He had retired as the Chief of Staff, U.S. Army in August 2003. His military career began as a second lieutenant graduating from the United States Military Academy in 1965. In 2008, President Barack Obama nominated Shinseki to serve as secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In 2014, evidence emerged that some facilities had covered up and misrepresented wait times, and Shinseki resigned.
