HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Fallen war heroes will be honored today at the legislature, and one of those is United States Air Force Captain and Kailua High School Graduate Reid Nishi-Zuka who received the Hawaii Medal of Honor. He died last year when his plane crashed in Afghanistan. Captain Nishi-Zuka's mother, Karyn Hatake and his brother Reyn joined Steve this morning on Sunrise to talk about Reid's life and what they remember most. Representative Mark Takai also was also there to talk more about what will be happening at today's ceremonies. It will be in House Chambers at the Hawaii State Capitol at 2 p.m.

The Hawaii Medal of Honor was created by Representative Mark Takai to recognize the heroism of Hawaii's armed forces. It is awarded on behalf of the people of the State of Hawaii to honor those with Hawaii ties who are killed in action while serving our country as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan.
