National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific

Located just north of downtown Honolulu in a long-extinct volcano called Punchbowl Crater, this is the resting-place for almost 53,000 veterans (and eligible family members). The memorial, placed on the National Register of Historic Places, stands in honor of the sacrifices and achievements of the American Armed Forces and commemorates the soldiers of 20th century wars, including those who were lost during the attack at Pearl Harbor.
