"Dan is working to support Pearl Harbor"

The back of the endorsement card said:

The Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard is Hawai‘i's largest industrial employer, with 4,300 civilian and 500 military personnel.

Dan Inouye has always been there to ensure that the Islands get their fair share. In 2005, he intervened to save Pearl Harbor's $1.5 billion shipyard from base closure. With the most advanced Virginia class of submarines homeported at Pearl Harbor, the future is bright.

Many local residents got their start in the shipyard apprentice program that Senator Inouye established 7 years ago. In that time, nearly 1,000 Hawai‘i apprentices have been recruited and trained at the shipyard, and upon graduation, they start at $28.25 an hour. This is a great investment in the future of our nation and our state, thanks to Senator Inouye.
