Cemetery officials get OK to fix Punchbowl restrooms

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Aug 20, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> Would it be possible for you to find out why the bathrooms at Punchbowl cemetery (near the Visitors Center) are in such disrepair? My wife and I attended services for my dad there in mid-July and went there again at the end of July. In the men's bathroom, the faucet leaked (more water going out the side than down), the floor was waterlogged and the floor tiles were buckling with at least one missing. The urinal, while usable, could sure use an update. I know federal dollars are tight, but this is a national cemetery. My wife said the women's bathroom could also use some TLC.</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> You'll be happy to hear that officials at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, Punchbowl, have secured permission to begin renovating the restrooms this month.</p>
