Bill Staton recalls his flight touching down in the United States following a one-year tour of duty in Vietnam and hearing the pilot announce over the intercom: “It has been an honor to bring you home.” Like thousands of his fellow servicemen and women returning home from the bitterly divisive war, the 20-year-old Staton soon found himself confronting a number of challenges – including depression, insomnia, and a profound sense of alienation that many veterans continue to struggle with 50 years later. “Those were the last kind words that I heard a stranger say for many years,” he says.

November is National Family Caregivers Month, and AARP Hawaii and community partners are offering a free caregiver conference on Saturday, November 14 at the Marriot Courtyard Kauai at Coconut Beach (8 a.m. -  12:30 p.m.). The event will provide information and resources to support caregivers and the families that depend on them.
The growing emphasis on personal savings in retirement creates greater uncertainty for pre-retirees. Hawaii residents live, on average, three years longer than other Americans, and for many people longevity comes with greater anxiety about outliving their assets. Add to that questions about the best time to collect Social Security benefits, and preparing for a secure retirement can be daunting.
I'll See You in My Dreams
AARP Hawaii will present a free screening of I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS at the Doris Duke Theater, Honolulu Museum of Art on Thursday, September 10 (6-8 p.m.)
Life Reimagined
Hawaii residents are living longer than ever before, with more options to explore and more time to pursue them. In an effort to help people evaluate their priorities and navigate new life phases, AARP Hawaii is hosting a free Life Reimagined event at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center on Tuesday, September 22 (5:30 - 7:30 pm).
Women and Money
Surveys indicate that Americans aren’t saving enough for retirement, and the risk of coming up financially short is especially real for Hawaii’s women – who tend to live longer, earn less, and spend more time out the workforce caring for family than men.
