KEKAHA, Hawaii (AP) - The Navy says it's renaming a building at a military base on Kauai after the late Sen. Daniel K. Inouye.

The Navy will hold a ceremony on Wednesday to rename the Pacific Missile Range Facility's operations center.

Inouye served in the U.S. Senate from 1963 until his death in 2012. He received the Medal of Honor for his service with the 442nd Regimental Combat Team in World War II.

The Pacific Missile Range Facility at Barking Sands hosts military training and testing. It's the only training range in the world where submarines, surface ships, aircraft and space vehicles can operate and be tracked simultaneously.
