News, events and activities for Hawaii residents age 50-plus
We may be isolated, but we don’t have to be alone. AARP Community Connections is a new website that offers steps to find help – or give it – during the coronavirus pandemic. At a time when people are self-isolating, the website connects you to support in your community. It also enables you to join or organize your own online mutual aid group to stay connected, share ideas and help your family, neighbors and those most affected by COVID-19.

The spread of the coronavirus across our country has created a very stressful environment for all Americans and especially older people and those with underlying health conditions who are at heightened risk. During these difficult days, I want to assure you that AARP is actively engaged in our nation’s response to the outbreak, and we are working hard to help our members, their families and broader community understand how to protect themselves.

Some of the steps we are taking include:

When Honolulu native Capt. Francis Brown Wai landed on Red Beach in Leyte in the Philippines on Oct. 20, 1944, Gen. Douglas McArthur’s forces seeking to retake the island from the Japanese were disorganized and pinned down by machine-gun fire on an open beach. Many of the officers who had landed before him were either dead or wounded. Wai immediately took charge, issuing orders and exposing himself to enemy fire in order to locate the Japanese machine guns. Inspired by his heroism, the soldiers advanced and knocked out the enemy positions. Wai’s actions, however, cost him his life.

One of the most common scams is government impostors, where you may get a phone call, an email, or a visit to your home from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration, the Internal Revenue Service or some other government agency. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission recently reported victims lost nearly $153 million to government impostor scams in 2019 – a staggering amount.
