Outside of those in or have served with the US Military forces most folks probably aren’t aware of this place of honor exists, but should. If you are ever on Ohau you must visit and pay your respects to those that helped save this Nation🇺🇸

Placed in an ancient volcanic crater, hence the ‘bowl’ namesake, the location is indescribably beautiful. The green of the trees, the brightness of the flowers, the immaculate manicured lawns, the red, white and blue of old glory in the avenue of flags, all rippling in...More
