Act 139 signed by Governor Abercrombie on June 21, 2013 directed the Office of Veterans Services with the assistance of the Department of Accounting and General Services, the Department of Defense, and the State Historic Preservation Division to develop a plan to give tangible and visible recognition of the sacrifices and contributions of veterans from Hawaii who served in the Persian Gulf War, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation New Dawn, Global War on Terrorism, Homeland Defense, and Operation Noble Eagle.

The Memorial Task Force, co-chaired by David Brostrom and Allen Hoe, the Gold Star Fathers of Army 1st Lieutenants Jonathan Brostrom and Nainoa Hoe, recently announced that they are seeking input from individuals, organizations and the general public on what the Memorial honoring Hawaii veterans design should include and where it should be located.
