AmVets Hawaii Ewa Battlefield Memorial Initiative
AMVETS Renews Arizona Memorial as “Keepers of the Wall”

Our Mission

AMVETS Hawaii mission is to provide advocacy, support and assistance for all who served honorably in the United States Armed Forces: past, present and future veterans and their families; To inform, influence and inspire others to serve in our military and civilian communities; and To especially honor and never forget not only our World War II veterans who died at Pearl Harbor and Ewa Field, but also those many more who died in sea battles, distance coral atolls - Coral Sea, Midway, Wake- their names often never recognized or mentioned for their sacrifices.

Honoring the Past, Inspiring the Future

- Preserve and Honor: Remembering the legacy of those who came before us

- Educate and Inspire: Passing the legacy on to the generations who will follow

It is our duty and our solemn vow to never forget those who fought and died. Let us always honor the brave men of the USS Arizona with this memorial so they may rest in peace among the waves and know they will never be forgotten.

President Lincoln said that speeches and statues are not an adequate repayment for service in defense of one’s country. One day of remembrance is simply not enough for what these veterans did 73 years ago. For we are able to choose freedom today because of the bravery of those men and women whose fate, on that day, had been chosen for them.
