Owner description: The resting place for more than 25,000 victims of three American Wars - World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War – this is truly the “Cemetery of Heroes.” Punchbowl was formed some 75,000 to 100,000 years ago during the Honolulu period of secondary volcanic activity. A crater resulted from the ejection of hot lava through cracks in the old coral reefs that, at the time, extended to the foot of the Koolau Mountain Range. Of special note is a monument honoring Hawaii-born astronaut Ellison Onizuka, who perished aboard the Challenger space shuttle in 1986. Also noteworthy are the Courts of the Missing, white stone tablets bearing the names of those missing in action from World War II.

At least drive through and pay your respects. You will find Ernie Pyle's grave surrounded by unknowns as he requested. It is on the main drive.

Our tour to Pearl Harbour included a drive through the cemetery. It wouldn't be a place to go to by itself but it was included with the tour so it wasn't bad.

very pretty but I was exhausted by the time we got there after being at Pearl harbor all day. I'd like to go back again.

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is well done.
The maps that depict battles are clear and educational.
The Cemetery is green, lush and hosts a great view.
There are clean restrooms available.
Read a little history before you arrive, this land has historical significance.
Well worth a visit.

I decided that I needed to see this as it was one my list of places to visit, there is information regarding the wars and if you walk along the graves you will be shocked to see that there are a few unknown graves which broke my heart, a place well worth visiting even if its just to pay respects to the fallen soldiers
