During WWII, preparations for the harrowing 36-day Battle of Iwo Jima took place on Guam, on the “Big Island” of Hawaii and on Maui. On Feb. 23, 1945, American flags were raised on Mt. Suribachi, signifying Allied determination, jointness of effort, and victory with the great sacrifice in the Pacific. The capture of Iwo Jima saved thousands of B-29 flights and the lives of over 25,000 Army Air Corps Crewmen.
A symbol of this victory, the Pacific War Memorial in Hawaii, is located on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay. Help us pay tribute to all those who have served to protect our freedom.
Surrounding the base of the Pacific War Memorial is a “Walkway of Honor” with (4×8 inch) engraved stones paying tribute to veterans, active duty personnel, their loved ones, and other individuals who have contributed $100 or more as supporters of the DoD and U.S. Military. The Marina at Kaneohe Bay continues this tradition maintaining the permanent memorial.
