HONOLULU (AP) - A military cargo jet will be named after the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports (http://bit.ly/1yLO03B) that a C-17 Globemaster III will be dedicated to Inouye in a ceremony this coming Wednesday.

The Navy also plans to name one of its new destroyers after Inouye, a World War II veteran and staunch supporter of the military during his 50-year tenure in the Senate.

He died nearly two years ago of a respiratory ailment. He was 88.
