New memorial would replace existing ones

Honolulu Advertiser

Three articles appeared in the July 28 edition of The Honolulu Advertiser about war memorials in Hawaii honoring those veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
We already have a befitting memorial for those veterans who died in the Korean and Vietnam wars.

Wouldn’t it be a good thing to honor those veterans who died in World War I and World War II with a new memorial on the grounds of the State Capitol?

This new memorial would replace the natatorium and the memorial at Punchbowl and King streets.

If possible, the design would be a continuation of the Korean War and Vietnam War memorials.
