Chapter 858 Lays Wreaths at ‘The Punchbowl’

Members of Chapter 858 in Oahu, Hawaii, participate in every ceremony held at the majestic National Cemetery of the Pacific, known as “The Punchbowl.” Commemorations are held each Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Anzac Day, WWII [Battleship] Arizona Survivor ceremony, and POW/MIA Day. Hundreds of people gather the evening before every Memorial Day for a candlelight vigil to honor the service and sacrifice of Vietnam veterans, both during and after the war. About 30,000 Vietnam veterans live in Hawaii, as well as 50,000 active-duty military personnel.
