National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl, Honolulu, Hawaii

National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl, Honolulu, Hawaii

Built in 1948 this National Cemetery is located in the Puowaina Crater (Punchbowl).
In ancient times this crater was known as the "Hill of Sacrifice".
So today the cemetery is a memorial to the sacrifice made by the men and women in the United States Armed Services.
Dedicated on September 2, 1949, 776 casualties from the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor were among the first to be buried here.
