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.
