A History of Punchbowl: Arlington of the Pacific

Notify me when this product is available:

by Pierre Moulin

For centuries the volcanic crater commonly known as Punchbowl has played a significant role in the history of the Hawaiian Islands, but Punchbowl's finest hour arrived when the site was designated as the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific - the last resting place for many of America's fallen servicemen and women.

Dubbed "the Arlington of the Pacific," Punchbowl is hallowed ground visited each year by thousands who come to pay their respects to the men and women who have given their lives for the cause of American freedom.

A History of Punchbowl tells the story of the place from its earliest days as a site of ancient rituals, to when it was a fort for the Hawaiian Kingdom and a gun battery during the uncertain years of the Second World War, to its current role as a sacred and honored memorial for America's heroes.

Soft cover. 84 pages. Includes black & white and color photos.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
