Today we remember


On Memorial Day we remember those who gave their lives to preserve our liberty.

One of my favorite places in the world is National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific in the center of Honolulu, Hawaii.

A Hawaii couple have an excellent page on World War II memorials in Hawaii, all of which are on Oahu. The World Tourist Scroll down a screen to see National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific. It is known as The Punchbowl for its unique shape: it is a volcano crater of just the right size.

The photos: The central structure of the cemetary: on the sides are the names of men and a few women who died in the Pacific whose remains were never found. All the rear (top) are a series of panels that tell the story of the Pacific War with maps done as beautiful mosaics - second photo.
