To our valued members, customers and supporters: 

Like so many other non profits, Pacific Historic Parks has been hit hard by COVID 19. All five of the parks under our umbrella, including the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, home to the iconic USS Arizona Memorial, were shut down in mid March 2020 when the pandemic hit. 

Four of the parks have yet to reopen as of this writing.  They are the War in the Pacific Historical Park on Guam, the American Memorial Park on Saipan,  Diamond Head State Monument on Oahu and Kalaupapa National Historical Park on Molokai.  

The Pearl Harbor National Memorial reopened in June but was shut down again later in the summer for another month.  It reopened a third time in late September when state and county officials approved new orders allowing museums to reopen with certain restrictions.

All this happened as our ecommerce site is undergoing construction.

We apologize for that inconvenience. While we work to get the permanent online store back up, we have a temporary store available. 

We are continuing with our popular History Talks sessions. And we are launching virtual field trips to bring the stories of Pearl Harbor and World War II in the Pacific to students in Hawaii, the Mainland and worldwide.

We do thank you for your support during these tough times.

As a service learning site, the crater allows students to work with park staff on plant restoration projects that incorporate lessons in ecology. This is a great opportunity for students to build upon their resume, meet other passionate people within the community, and give back to the 'aina.
When Is It Appropriate To Gift An American Flag
When Is It Appropriate To Gift An American Flag

If you haven't owned an American flag before, it's difficult to know when is the appropriate time to gift a flag. You often see flags displayed prominently outside of homes or schools, but they're also commonly displayed indoors on shelves in a beautiful shadowbox (a triangular case for a folded flag).

How do you effectively teach war? Namely, how do you teach the Attack On Pearl Harbor? Do you as the teacher understand why Pearl Harbor happened? Can you interpret the facts and keep the students engaged?

Great customer service!

Our staff purchased the flag for our boss! He loved it! Probably the best gift we have given. We appreciate the time Jo gave in making this gift the best! Thank you Jo!

Alive again

I was aware of the WASPs in World War II, but I did not even come close to knowing the acronym (Women Airforce Service Pilots). I learned via this book about the quality and quantity of contributions to the World War II effort, but also about the sacrifices and lack of recognition to them as an organization and as individuals. I observe the quality photographs in this book bring their stories to us as real people of just a generation or so ago. The quality of the book lends itself well to have out on the table so that our guests might ask about it, and we might have an invitation to inform and give a gift from of the past that might inspire us today.

FRUSTRATED

Putting designs on the BACK of a t-shirt defeats the entire purpose.........put the design on the FRONT of the t-shirt where people can actually see it!!!!!!!! More money wasted.

Just what I wanted

The bracelet is just what I wanted. My mom is dying and one of the last trips we took was to the Arizona Memorial. She lost a brother during WWII, we heard stories about that day

Fantastic customer service!!!

After my flag arrived I called Jo to tell her USPS destroyed the box and it was wet.
Certificate was crumpled and the flag insert torn. Jo immediately packed up a new certificate and flag insert. Took a picture to show me how well it was packaged. Arrived in perfect condition. Jo, I commend you on a job well done!!!
Thank you!
