Vietnam War pavilion to be dedicated in Honolulu

By Associated Press


Two new pavilions will be dedicated during a Veteran’s Day ceremony this weekend at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. 

One pavilion includes Vietnam War battle maps complementing existing World War II and Korean War battle maps. The other pavilion will serve as an orientation center. 

The architectural style of the two structures is consistent with other map gallery pavilions at the Punchbowl cemetery in Honolulu.  

Outgoing U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka will deliver the keynote address during Sunday’s ceremony. 

Former U.S. senator from Georgia and current secretary of the American Battle Monuments Commission, Max Cleland, will also speak. 

The two pavilions were built at a cost of $4 million. They sit next to two flag poles flanking the processional stairs of the Honolulu Memorial.
