About National Memorial Cemetery Of The Pacific, Honolulu
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.

National Memorial Cemetery Of The Pacific, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review
Somber and spectacular at the same time. Military legends lay beside warriors of all kinds. Pulitzer pride winning American journalist Ernie Pyle was laid to rest in plot D 109. Several Medal of Honor earners are also entombed including Japanese descendants in the 100th infantry battalion and the 442 infantry regiment. Highly recommend taking time to reflect and enjoy the views of HONOLULU.
It's gorgeous here! Great views... Be sure to walk up the ramp to the lookout on the crater rim. You can see the whole city and Diamond Head from up there!
My grandmother rests here. Beautiful land and powerful cemetery. I wonder about the mo'olelo of this place.
A surreal place. Even without the weight and impact of the memorial to lives lost, the geography and beautiful grounds give the cemetery the feel of an outdoor cathedral with a perfect blue sky as the ceiling and verdant grassy slopes as the walls.
As a tourist visiting Hawaii I felt the need to visit this place. Truly one of the most beautiful places I've visited. Very impressive to see the heroes of war laid to rest here.
