Hawai'i II

The North Shore of Oahu is famed for its huge waves and surfing competitions. I drove up to see some of the famous waves and was pleased to find this nice memorial in Hale'iwa in the Hale'iwa Beach Park. I was there for a while and was astounded how how quickly the sky changed as evidenced by these first two pictures.

The memorial commemorates and honors those lost from the area in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. I could find no additional information about it but maybe the names say it all.

Facing the water the memorial bears the names of thirteen local men who gave all in Vietnam, including one who was added at a later date..

Next time we will see a couple of small memorials located within the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific along the Walk of Honor. Join me on the 8th at 9:00am.
