|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Honolulu Memorial is located within the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in an extinct volcano ("The Punchbowl") near the center of Honolulu.
On either side of the grand stairs leading to the memorial are eight Courts of the Missing on which are inscribed the names of the 18,096 American World War II missing from the Pacific, excluding those from the southwest Pacific (who are memorialized at the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial), and 8,200 American missing from the Korean War. Two half courts have been added at the foot of the staircase that contain the names of 2,504 Americans missing from the Vietnam War. At the top of the stairs is a chapel flanked by galleries containing mosaic maps and descriptions of the achievements of the American armed forces in the Central and South Pacific regions and in Korea. (NOTE: Individuals memorialized here on the tablets do not have "grave markers" in the ground here.) Individuals memorialized here on the tablets at the "Honolulu Memorial" are the Missing in Action, lost, or buried at sea in the Pacific during WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
