Our mission:

To help provide needed support and assistance for all who served honorably in the United States Armed Forces: past, present and future veterans and their families.

Our purpose:

(2) To help unify divergent groups in the overall interest of American democracy;

(3) To train our youth to become purposeful citizens in a democracy with full knowledge of the responsibilities as well as the privileges of citizenship;

(4) To cooperate with all duly recognized existing veterans organizations in the furtherance of the aims of the veterans who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces of the United States during and since World War II; (5) To ensure the orderly return of the veteran to civilian life by protecting the rights of individuals while the service member is still in uniform;

(6) To expedite and assist in the rehabilitation of veterans by maintaining employment services; sponsoring educational opportunities; providing counsel on insurance, housing, recreation, personal problems, hospitalization and veterans benefits;

(7) To act as a liaison agent between the veteran and the government;

(8) To provide an organization to encourage fellowship among all American veterans who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces of the United States during and since World War II;

(9) To keep the public forever reminded that the American veterans who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces of the United States during and since World War II fought and served to preserve peace, liberty and democracy for their nation;

(10) To inform, influence and inspire others to serve in our military and civilian communities

(11) To help provide needed financial support and assistance to service members, veterans and their families;

(12) To help provide needed financial support and assistance for the preservation of Ewa Battlefield and other historic sites;

(13) To help provide needed financial support to build and preserve memorials and monuments in Hawaii; and,

(14) To 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; and all other conflicts.

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.
