The State Department of Defense once held Awards and Retirement luncheons twice a year. These luncheons recognized retiring Federal and state employees. Current employees who achieved 10, 20, 30 or more years of longevity received service awards. Luncheons were held at the Hale Koa Hotel. 

This photograph shows Ben Fuata and Gene Feller at the September 21, 2012 luncheon. Ben retired from the Hawaii Army National Guard after many years of service. He later served as the Director of Hawaii County Civil Defense. Gene flew with the 203rd Air Refueling Squadron and served on the 154th Wing staff. He transferred from the 128th Air Refueling Wing, Wisconsin Air National Guard as the 203 ARS was organized in the early 1990s.
