National Memorial Cemetery Of The Pacific - Review
The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is quite a somber place to visit in Honolulu. A stark reminder of those who lost their lives in World War II. It is also a very important burial place for all war veterans in the United States. The cemetery is quite beautifully built and it has a stoic atmosphere to it.
Seeing the gravestones, sculptures and the inscriptions can be quite heartening. There is a sense of pride in the way in which these final resting places of the brave soldiers have been displayed at this site.
Interestingly although the cemetery was built for civilians, it was never used due to its odd location above the city. As a result it was turned into a War Department Cemetery later on. There are 56 memorials in the place honoring people including those who died at Pearl Harbor. These are certainly worth a note. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Honolulu itinerary 4 days.

National Memorial Cemetery Of The Pacific, Honolulu Reviews
This is a really stirring Memorial to all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the United States. And I'd only is the significance of this location quite historical, the facilities are top-notch kept up to shape and very appealing, all while remaining very reverential. I can't imagine anybody missing the opportunity to visit this location as part of a trip to the island of a Oahu.
This place is always kept in top notch shape when visiting. The grounds are kept clean. Visitors are super respectful when on premises. There is a new visitor center built, which was done nicely. The views from Punchbowl are spectacular! It's especially a very heartfelt moment when entering the park on Memorial Day when scouts from all across Hawaii honor each grave with the American flag and a flower or ti leaf lei.
Beautiful, poignant monument to and cemetery for our nation's veterans. We have so much to thank them for. It is a winding road to get there in the Punchbowl Crater. Stop at the small Visitors Center if you wish to locate a particular veteran's grave or learn more about the cemetery. The Visitors Center has a nice overlook on Honolulu. Then follow the winding road up into the crater and around the cemetery.
Placed a Wreath in Honor of my Father(Veteran) this past National Wreaths Aceoss America Day with my husband (active duty). This place has rich History. I feel at peace when I walk around here. Beautiful architecture and a beautiful place for those laid to rest here. You will find murals on wars, with maps engraved. You will find details of faith beyond the hallways and you will surely feel the emotions with each step.
This is a peaceful and somber place respective of those who went before us. I often visit this National Park to visit a stillborn sons of friends and the interred ashes of former patients in the new Columbariums. I remember visiting as a young child and the gravity of this monument becomes greater with the years. Come to Honor and to remember the mortality in all of us.
