Health services For Our Micronesian Community
Over the years here in Hawaii, we have seen the community of Micronesians grow. The clamor has also grown louder about federal reimbursements to communities like Hawaii and Guam which also has a large population. Today Kuuwehi Hiraishi joins us live with more on a looming deadline that stands to affect health care for three island nations.

Veteran Story: Alex Tang
Tomorrow marks the 17th anniversary of the 911 attacks on New York and the Pentagon. Earlier this summer we came across a woman with a little different story. Alex Tang told us she signed up after visiting the 911 Memorial Museum through a program that reached out to immigrants that today no longer exists. Even though Tang has left the Army she still is deeply connected and moved to help our soldiers.
Outro music: Dunes by Alabama Shakes
