The Pacific War Memorial

The Pacific War Memorial Association is pleased to announce that the Pacific War Memorial in Hawaii is now at the entrance to Marine Corps Base Hawaii. It is a copy of the National Iwo Jima Memorial in Newington, CT. This memorial depicts a moment in time - the flag raising atop Mt. Suribachi on February 23, 1945 during the Battle Of Iwo Jima, immortalized by Joe Rosenthal's famous photograph.

 


Brick Markers® USA was proud to provide the engraved bricks for the circular walkway around the monument. Brick donors and future generations will enjoy their engraved bricks for many years to come. Four benches will be situated next to the monument, allowing visitors a place to rest and gaze upon the figures and look out across the Kaneohe Bay to the Koolau Mountain Range.
